This paper examines the role of local government in the planning, delivery, and management of human services based on a discussion of provincial programs in Ontario. The findings reveal that local government’s role in human services is being eroded due to provincial initiatives and provincial-municipal agreements that assume greater control by the Ontario government in local activities.
