Membership in COTAPSA Speaks Volumes!

With Each Membership, We Grow Louder and Stronger

The City of Toronto Administrative, Professional, Supervisory Association, Incorporated (COTAPSA) was formed in 1967.

In 1998, following amalgamation, COTAPSA Inc. merged with other former Municipal Management Associations to become one strong voice. We now proudly represent the majority of eligible non-union employees from across the City. We are the oldest and largest Municipal Management Association in Canada.

In December of 2017, an agreement in the form of a Relationship Protocol was signed between COTAPSA and the City of Toronto.  The 'protocol's' intent was to: clarify and reflect the current basis upon which the City and COTAPSA will work together to support and enable ongoing collaboration, issue resolution, and information sharing in relation to the City's policies applicable to employees who are members of COTAPSA.
