Municipal Performance Measurement

The Trent Lakes Financial Information Report consolidates both the MPMP and the FIR.

The Municipal Performance Measurement Program (MPMP)  is a mandatory annual reporting that shows how tax dollars are spent and how services compare year-to-year and in relation to others.

The Financial Information Return (FIR) is a standard set of year-end reports which capture financial and statistical information for each municipality in the Province.
