Municipal Monitor

Telling the Ontario Municipal Sector Story

The AMCTO Municipal Monitor is our Association's quarterly print and digital magazine that includes long-form stories and interviews on municipal trending topics, leadership, and management issues.

The Monitor is one of the many member benefits we offer to keep our community informed and engaged on the latest news and sector stories that matter.

Municipal Monitor Extra: Artificial Intelligence in the Public Sector

As our Association evolves, we are continuing to look for new ways to connect with members and reach a broader audience of local government professionals. We have heard from members that they want opportunities to hear directly from the Monitor authors to be able to engage with our content in different ways. The Municipal Monitor Extra aims to provide a more thorough discussion around important topics, with the goal being to release similar conversations alongside each issue of the Municipal Monitor.
