History

The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing was established in 1976 as the successor to the Dept. of Municipal Affairs and the Dept. of Housing (OIC 3199/76). The ministry was organized into a Municipal Affairs Section and a Housing Section with each section headed by a Deputy Minister. The purpose of the Municipal Affairs Section was to administer, review and process by-laws relative to municipalities, regional districts, and improvement districts; evaluate administrative practices and procedures, including financial management, of local governments, special programs respecting building regulations, and regional planning processes for municipalities and regional districts. The purpose of the Housing Section was to supervise, acquire, develop, maintain, improve and dispose of housing in the Province; encourage the creation and support of assisted housing through government grants to municipalities and other organizations. In 1978, the ministry was disbanded. The housing function was transferred to the Ministry of Lands, Parks and Housing and the responsibility for municipalities was transferred to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs (OIC 3018/78).
