This new report from the Columbia Institute is about the emerging trend of remunicipalization. As part of our ongoing work to promote the value of publicly-delivered services, the Canadian Union of Public Employees helped fund the production of Back in house. The report examines the Canadian environment for local governments, shares 15 Canadian case studies about returning services, follows-up and reports back on two earlier studies promoting contracted out services, provides a scan of international findings, and shares some best practices and governance checkpoints for bringing services back in house. Many of the local governments examined employ CUPE members.
