CAO Survey 2022

Since 2016, StrategyCorp has conducted an annual survey of municipal Chief Administrative Officers (CAOs) and City Managers from across Ontario, seeking their opinions on the most pressing issues in the municipal sector. Here are our findings from 2022.

We interviewed CAOs from municipalities of all sizes across Ontario, from upper-tier, lower-tier and single-tier municipalities. We conducted the interviews for this survey in late 2021 and early 2022. It was a time when summer’s public optimism that the pandemic might have run its course collided with the renewal of lockdowns and the Omicron variant.

This report is a snapshot of what the leaders of Ontario’s municipal sector are thinking at a critical time in Ontario’s history.
