The Kenora District Municipal Association works to make regional municipal governments stronger and more effective. Through KDMA, the region’s 9 municipalities work together to achieve shared goals and meet common challenges. The mandate of the organization is to support and enhance strong and effective municipal government in Ontario. It promotes the value of the municipal level of government as a vital and essential component of Ontario and Canada’s political system. KDMA’s mandate is delivered in a variety of ways, KDMA:
- develops policy positions and reports on issues of general interest to municipal governments;
- conducts ongoing liaison with the provincial government elected and non-elected representatives; and
- informs and educates governments, the media and the public on municipal issues
The KDMA AGM and Annual Conference is the region’s top educational forum for municipal governments. This must-attend events programming is geared to municipal elected officials and staff who wish to discover the latest policy developments, discuss issues and learn from best practices that are key to the region’s municipalities. The Conference mobilizes members to help shape public policy and provides a platform for the participants to network and plan for their municipal future.
This year the conference has been postponed however the AGM will be held virtually via ZOOM. The meeting will take place on February 18, 2021 at 5:30 pm central time.
