Course Description

This course examines the structures that influence local government decision-making. A significant amount of the material will draw from the Greater Toronto Area (GTA); however, relevant examples from other jurisdictions within Canada will be discussed. Weekly topics include: the history of local/municipal government, democracy versus efficiency, urbanization, political and administrative structures, finance, sustainable cities, and the role of major stakeholders such as business, labour, and citizens groups in the municipal arena.

Notes

This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.

Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
