We've Partnered with the University of Toronto Press

We are proud to announce a new affinity partnership program with the University of Toronto Press (UTP) to offer all AMCTO members 30% off UTP publications and access to exclusive members-only webinars and author events.
Founded in 1901, the University of Toronto Press is Canada’s leading academic publisher and one of the largest university presses in North America. Each year, UTP publishes approximately 180 new scholarly, course, and general interest books. UTP’s reputation for excellence stems from the publication of influential authors and outstanding research, as well as a continuing dedication to groundbreaking new scholarship.
As part of the 2022-2026 AMCTO Strategic Plan, providing valuable member professional growth, network and community, is a top priority. With this new partnership, we are proud to provide additional spaces for you to network with fellow members and the broader municipal community and hope that you will take advantage of UTP’s extensive library to further expand your knowledge.

"AMCTO and the Board are always looking for ways to increase membership value. This partnership with UTP allows us to offer more education and knowledge-sharing opportunities and experiences for members, building on our pillar of professional growth and goal of advancing the municipal profession."
