The ministry maintains information related to the status of incorporated municipalities (i.e. village, town, city or RM) and municipal boundary changes. Additionally, municipalities from time to time determine that it is in their best interests to restructure, such as a boundary alteration, or to have their territory included under the governance of an adjacent municipality. A merger could result in the disorganization of one municipality in order to include its territory into another municipality, or the creation of a new municipality from one or more former municipalities.
