It is the desire of the OMAA Board of Directors to promote good governance at the municipal government level. One such supporting element is to ensure skilled and experienced leadership exists amongst municipal bureaucrats. In turn, the sector requires a continued assimilation of young people to bring energy and new views that contribute to sound management, and indeed good governance.

In 2015, OMAA has established a 10 year Bursary program offering $5,000 annually to reflect its interest in contributing to the education of future municipal government leaders. The intention of the "OMAA Bursary" is to:

  • Raise the profile regarding the benefits of municipal careers
  • Promote the profession of CAO
  • Provide an opportunity for OMAA Members to assist students interested in a local government future with the financing of their schooling
