About Local Government Week

The Township of South Glengarry will be celebrating Local Government Week during the third week of October, along with numerous other municipalities throughout Ontario. This event offers a valuable opportunity for students and young residents to enhance their understanding of local government  and express their thoughts on what matters to them as members of the South Glengarry community. Local Government Week was established through collaborative efforts between the Province of Ontario, the Association of Municipal Managers, Clerks, and Treasurers of Ontario, and the Association of Municipalities of Ontario. Its purpose is to recognize and commemorate the vital role that local governments in Ontario play in shaping the identity, priorities, and amenities of our communities.
