The Ministry of Municipal Affairs manages the Municipal Performance Measurement Program (MPMP), which requires municipalities to declare a set of data that measure the efficiency and effectiveness of key service sectors. 

Municipalities are required to report municipal performance data in the Financial Information Return (FIR) and submit by May 31st annually. The FIR is the main data collection tool used by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs to collect financial and statistical information on municipalities. All data collected is public and may be consulted online.
