HISTORY

Under the former Municipal Act, 1990, a city was both an urban and a local municipality. Under this former legislation, the Municipal Board could change the status of a village or town to a city, upon review of an application from the village or town, if it had a population of 15,000 or more. The Municipal Board could also incorporate a township as a city under the same conditions with the exception that the population requirements was 25,000 or more. In the event an application was received from a village, town or township located within a county, the application could have only been approved by the Municipal Board if authorized by the Minister of Municipal Affairs.

In the transition to the Municipal Act, 2001, these requirements were abandoned and, as at December 31, 2002, every city that:

* "existed and formed part of a county, a regional or district municipality or the County of Oxford for municipal purposes" became a lower-tier municipality yet retained its name as a city; and * "existed and did not form part of a county, a regional or district municipality or the County of Oxford for municipal purposes" became a single-tier municipality yet retained its name as a city.

The current legislation also provides lower and single-tier municipalities with the authority to name themselves as "cities", or other former municipal status types such as "towns", "villages" or "townships", or generically as "municipalities".
