The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing welcomes you to the home of the Financial Information Return (FIR) and Municipal Performance Measurement Program (MPMP).

This website consists of pages for FIR REPORTING and pages for VIEWING FIR / MPMP DATA as submitted by Municipalities. Please use the links on the left to go to the appropriate Reporting year, or the appropriate year for Viewing FIR / MPMP Data.

About the FIR

The FIR is the main data collection tool used by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing to collect financial and statistical information on Municipalities. The FIR is a standard document comprised of a number of Schedules which are updated each year to comply with current legislation and reporting requirements.

To complete the FIR, each municipality begins by downloading the FIR from this website. The municipality then enters information into the FIR electronically, and once completed, submit the FIR via email to FIR.MAH@ontario.ca. This email address is also used to address any questions or concerns a municipality may have when completing the FIR.

At the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing, the FIR data is then stored in the MARS (Municipal Analysis and Retrieval System) Database. Since the FIR is a standard document which is collected from every municipality each year, the MARS Database has evolved into a vast library of municipal financial information dating back to 1977.

The FIR is designed to include many automatic calculations, including formulas which carry-forward data from one schedule to another. To further assist municipality’s with completing the FIR, a series of data verification checks are built into the FIR. These checks verify information as it is entered by the municipality, and ensure that accurate data is submitted. Also, before a municipality even begins completing the FIR, several data points from the previous year FIR are pre-loaded into the current FIR. This ensures that closing balances from the previous year match opening balances for the current year.

NOTES
The source of the information displayed on this website is the Financial Information Return (FIR).
Data is posted on the site regularly, thus at a specific point in time, data may be missing or incomplete. Please refer to the "Date Posted" columns to determine when data was last refreshed.
Occasionally, current or historical FIR data is updated. In this case, the "Date Posted" will also be updated.
FIR data on this site is shown as it was submitted by a Municipality, however discrepancies may exist due to Rounding.
Users of the Data should be cautious with agregating Data and/or making comparisons betweeen Municipalities and/or between different Reporting years.
Municipalities are shown as they existed in each year, thus Municipal Restructurings or Name Changes may result in a different "Municipal List" from year to year
Navigation links / anchors which move the user from part of the website to another part of the website will occur in the same browser, while all other links in this document will open new windows in your web browser.
Right Click and "Save Target As" to save FIR data files onto any Drive on your computer OR Double-click to automatically open the Data files.
Excel versions of the Data files are ZIPPED to reduce the file size and shorten download time. The WINZIP program is necessary to UNZIP the file once it has been downloaded.
