CanMap Municipal
Amalgamation File

Provider: DMTI Spatial Inc.

In 1953, Canada witnessed its first municipal amalgamation with the creation of Metropolitan Toronto.

Since then, municipal reform has been implemented across the country and with great vigor since the late 90’s. To help clients stay on top of these amalgamations, DMTI Spatial has created the Municipal Amalgamation File (MAF).


The Municipal Amalgamation File (MAF) is a supplementary municipality boundary with CanMap Streetfiles and CanMap RouteLogistics and reflects recent changes to any amalgamated municipal boundaries, their subsequent changes to name, municipality type and date of amalgamation. An amalgamation is defined as a consolidation of two or more entire municipalities.

The Municipal Amalgamation file contains:

  • Amalgamation data derived from the 1996 census, 2001 census, and provincial/territorial sources
  • Census Subdivision Name and Type revisions from the 1996 census and 2001 census


The Municipal Amalgamation File is ideal for users who wish to conduct analysis sensitive to changes in municipal amalgamations.

Other benefits include:

  • Aligns with other DMTI Spatial data sets for complete analysis
  • Display and analyze your data on a nationwide standard
  • Shipped in plug-and-play format in the world’s leading GIS software formats


  • ESRI
  • MapInfo
  • Custom formats available upon request.
