Municipalities need to recognize the impact a declining and aging population will have on their tax base, overall economic position, types and costs of services required and base for volunteer contributions. They may have to seek alternative methods of service delivery. The availability of recreational and cultural facilities as well as health and education services, impacts long-term viability. Indicators of social and cultural well-being are therefore an indicator of long-term municipal government sustainability. According to the municipal Acts, one of the purposes of municipalities is to foster economic, social and environmental well-being.
