Regional Government

Consultations on Regional Government have concluded. Thank you for your participation. Future updates on this initiative will be posted on this site.

 
#RegionalGovNL

The Provincial Government has heard from residents who are concerned about the long-term sustainability of local governments and who have asked the Provincial Government to explore implementation of a regional government model for the province.

As part of The Way Forward: Realizing Our Potential, the Provincial Government announced its intention to implement regional governance and/ or sharing of services pilot(s) as appropriate, by 2019.

Changing the local governance structure in this province is a significant and challenging undertaking and any future decision-making could affect all areas of the province. As such, the Department of Municipal Affairs and Environment is seeking public input to help inform the development of a potential regional government model for Newfoundland and Labrador.

Deadline for feedback is November 17, 2017.
