What is a municipal family policy (MFP)

Although there is no official definition for a MFP, the following four points define key aspects:

  • the expression of political will to act on behalf of families including all their members from youngest to oldest;
  • a collective process involving community stakeholders;
  • a frame of reference and an action plan;
  • a guide that ensures the implementation and follow-up of measures adopted by the council.

The MFP, including its action plan, is a municipal policy lever that:

  • develops a collective approach to “Think and act family”;
  • contributes to advancing municipal measures
  • addresses family issues
  • promotes municipal involvement favouring families;
  • mobilises community stakeholders (elected officials, municipal employees, families and partners);
  • helps identify new issues affecting families and puts them on the political agenda;
  • supports the parents of very young children (0-5 years), children (6-12 years), adolescents (13-17 years) and young adults (18-25 years);
  • represents a collective strength.

The Municipality of Ormstown’s MFP follows three main guideline

1. Provide citizens with tools to enhance their level of security

The safety component of an area, from a single residential neighbourhood at the village centre through to commercial arteries, represents an important criterion when deciding to settle in a municipality. Ormstown understands this and over the coming years, the Municipality will support residents in this regard by consolidating active transportation and increasing access to health services.

2. Provide citizens with tools to support them at every stage of their growth

A new baby, a new professional challenge, developing new interests, children leaving home… every family changes over time. Between now and 2022, the Municipality will do all it can to support the population in matters of environmental policy and quality of life, housing and education.

3. Equip citizens to nurture their social network

Social networking is a resource for all and everyone benefits by connecting with others. In the coming years, Ormstown will encourage its residents to get out into the community and enjoy it to the fullest.

The Act instituting civil unions and establishing new rules of filiation adopted in 2002 gives mayors and municipal councillors, who would like to be designated authorised officiants, the authority to perform marriage and civil union ceremonies. This competence is exercised on a voluntary basis given that only elected officials and municipal employees who make the request to the ministère de la Justice are designated “authorised officiants”.

Councillor Michelle Greig, is authorised to officiate for marriages and civil unions in Ormstown.
