The Muniscope service aims to serve the information needs of municipalities and provincial/territorial ministries with an interest in municipal, regional and urban affairs. With the bulk of its funding provided by ICURR, Muniscope is able to offer library and research services to members at very reasonable rates.


Membership Options

Muniscope membership is available in either a Muniscope or Muniscope Plus package. Each package is designed to respond to the information needs of the various people and organizations who rely on the service.


The Muniscope package is suitable for those who simply wish to have access to select features of the Muniscope website and borrow a few items from the library each year. This membership level costs $150 per year.


The Muniscope Plus membership is ideal for organizations needing access for many staff members across a broad information spectrum. Muniscope Plus members get full access to the Muniscope website, extensive borrowing privileges from the library and access to research reports and services. An annual Muniscope Plus membership is available at $400.
