What is LAS?

Innovative Programs and Services for Ontario's Municipalities

Local Authority Services (LAS) is a preferred provider of competitively-priced and sustainable co-operative business services for Ontario municipalities and the broader public sector. LAS helps communities work better.

LAS was created in 1992 by the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO).
