Municipal Growth Readiness Checklist

The Municipal Growth Readiness Checklist (MGRC) is a tool to help municipalities self-assess their strengths, weaknesses, threats and opportunities. Shifting focus from sustainability to growth readiness for some municipalities will enable prioritization of the most pressing risks to medium and long-term growth.

About the Checklist

The checklist will allow municipalities' administrative and political officials to come to their own conclusions about the growth readiness of their municipality and what actions, if any, are needed to improve it.

Download the interactive tool

Save and print the paper version

Both versions allow municipalities to evaluate their growth readiness by answering questions related to eight key categories of municipal responsibility. 

  • Land use planning and governance
  • Administrative capacity
  • Fiscal health
  • Service delivery
  • Public safety
  • Infrastructure
  • Demographics and economic trends
  • Regional partnerships

Based on the responses, the tool will provide municipalities with a score related to each category. Examining the growth readiness scores will help municipalities assess the things that are going well and areas where there are opportunities for improvement.

Resources and More Information

A toolkit of resources is available under each category's page. For background information about the Checklist, download the Municipal Growth Readiness Concept Paper. Additional information for each category of the Municipal Government Growth Readiness Checklist is included in the document.
