Regional governments were planned by the provincial government to manage services that were provided to all residents of a region. The idea was it would be more cost efficient to for one upper level of government to provide a regional service opposed to many smaller municipalities duplicating efforts. (This idea had originated with the creation of Metropolitan Toronto in 1953.) The Regional Municipality of Ottawa - Carleton was the first regional government formed in the province, with several others being created in the following five years. The new municipality made it's debut on the 1969 map and existed until 2001 when the City of Ottawa was expanded to incorporate the area that had been the Region of Ottawa Carleton.
