Canadian Municipal Barometer

The Urban Policy Lab is a proud partner in the Canadian Municipal Barometer project, which surveys more than 3,500 mayors and councillors across Canada to capture the pulse of local democracy.

Between April 3rd and April 17th, the Canadian Municipal Barometer asked mayors and councillors in municipalities across Canada how long they expect the negative consequences of the pandemic to last in their communities. The answers – from more than 550 mayors and councillors, across more than 300 municipalities – provide an insightful first look at what political leaders across Canada expect in the months to come.
