The Ontario Small Urban Municipalities (OSUM) is the small urban municipal voice of the Province. OSUM is an integral part of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario and our communities make up the fabric and landscape of Ontario.

The conference will look at the latest initiatives; growing challenges; innovative solutions and will expand the conversation on the “Changing Landscapes” of Small Urban Ontario. The Conference offers up-to-date insights and real-world examples for municipal leaders and decision makers. This year the program will centre on the theme of ‘Changing Landscapes’ and how small urban Ontario can adapt to and embrace the demographic and policy change ahead.
