Our Mission

Make Government Projects Efficient, Effective and Outstanding.

Our Vision

To be a catalyst for positive local results that make a difference to the organizations that we serve.

Our Values

Energy, Enthusiasm, Collaboration, Dedication, Relationships, Innovation and Solution Seeking.

Is that Even Possible?  We say, YES!

Municipal work can be complicated, time consuming but also very rewarding.  Your organization has a long list of activities that you want to put into action.  You also want to be the community that is thriving even when times may be a little tougher out there.

At Municipal Experts we have the background and support services to harness your vision of a better municipality even if you aren't quite sure how to make it happen.

Whether you need support for grant applications, the creation of thorough plans that are easy to understand, or you just want to see a little more success at every level of the organization.  Our aim is to ensure that you are in the best position to advance the goals of your municipality.

Our team has decades of experience working with all orders of government and we will put our skills and knowledge to your advantage.

Paul Salvatore, BA, ALUP, CLGM

CEO, Municipal Experts Inc.

Paul's background in government service stretches back to his early days as a day camp counselor back when cable TV meant 12 channels.  From those humble beginnings he has been fortunate to serve over 25 years combined at the Local Government, Provincial and Federal Government levels.  He is acutely aware of the processes and barriers that the average person can face when dealing with all orders of government and he has always been committed to making it as easy as possible to make great things happen.

He is fiercely motivated to provide top level customer service while making sure that no matter how complicated, information that concerns everyday people can be provided in an easy to understand format that is open, transparent and powerful.

When he's not thinking about new ideas and partnerships that will enhance almost any organization, he spends his time in the saddle - cycling, or enjoying the outdoors cross-country skiing and fishing with great friends and family.

This year he plans to complete a personal best in the Gran Fondo Badlands - a 160km cycling event in his home town and one of Canada's top 10 cycling events according to Canadian Cyclist magazine.
