Municipalities are at the heart of our business

Intact Public Entities stood by Ontario municipalities and helped to seek amendments to the Minimum Maintenance Standards for municipal roads, we're also looking for ways to help with Joint & Several Liability issues. We continually monitor legislation to look for issues that could affect our clients. If we find anything that could have an impact on your community, we will share it with you and help you to plan accordingly.
