Municipal Watch Campaigns

When municipal government officials fail to honour their core responsibilities of efficient and cost-effective service delivery, they are also failing to honour their oaths of public service – to US, the Canadian citizens, voters and taxpayers who depend on them.

Municipal Watch empowers citizens to speak out.

How We Get Results

First, we track examples municipal waste and inefficiencies in two ways:

  1. With our own research and investigations
