Every year at the Fall Conference, the Nova Scotia Federation of Municipalities (NSFM) presents resolutions that were submitted by its membership and selected by the Resolution Committee for discussion and voting. Once passed, the resolutions are submitted to the Province through the Department of Municipal Affairs and discussed at the Ministerial/NSFM Roundtable for response and respective action plans. These resolutions fashion the priorities and focus for the NSFM Board of Directors.
Responses are shared with the membership and NSFM staff work with the Department on initiatives identified in the response. In preparation for the following fall conference, progress on the resolutions is reviewed and a determination is made whether to continue with the action plan in place or if the resolution needs to be re-submitted for further attention. NSFM has many other topics of municipal interest that are not formalized as a resolution, but are understandably of high importance to municipalities. These topics can be found in the Members Only section of our website.
