In 1901, the Union of Canadian Municipalities (UCM) was formed largely to remind utility companies they could not simply assume municipal consent for tearing up the public infrastructure without consideration: municipal rights-of-way had to be negotiated. In 1935 the Dominion Conference of Mayors (DCM) is formed. In 1973 the UCM and DCM merge to form the Canadian Federation of Mayors and Municipalities (CFMM).


Federation of Canadian Municipalities: name changed in August 1976 from Canadian Federation of Mayors and Municipalities.
