Big City Mayors meeting set for June in C-K


Chatham-Kent will have the chance to shine in June when Ontario’s Big City Mayors (OBCM) come to town.

The event will bring mayors from 29 municipalities from across the province together to discuss critical matters and policies that impact Ontario’s cities.

The mayors of Toronto, Ottawa, London and Windsor are among those who have been invited to attend.

The province-wide homelessness crisis is expected to be discussed, as well as ongoing and emergent issues, including housing and infrastructure and provincial/municipal funding.

Chatham-Kent Mayor Darrin Canniff said the issues facing mayors from large Ontario cities are becoming increasingly relevant to Chatham-Kent as it grows.

“Through the OBCM, we’re at the table with distinguished mayors from large cities across the province, participating in discussion about matters that are critical to the continued success of our community,” Canniff said in a media release.

More details will be made available to the public as the event draws closer, officials said.
