How many Ontario municipalities are there?


It is interesting to know that Ontario is the most populous province in Canada.  More than 13000000 residents live here.  Do not forget that Ontario has 444 municipalities.  The main idea is that they cover only 17% of the province’s land mass.  These municipalities provide local or regional municipal government services within either a single-tier or shared two-tier municipal structure.  It is interesting to know that of Ontario’s 444 municipalities, 30 of them are upper-tier municipalities and 414 are local municipalities, meaning 241 lower-tier municipalities and 173 single-tier municipalities.
