In 1970, the Ontario government established a two-tier system of municipal government. York County, with its existing 14 townships and villages, was dissolved, becoming the regional municipality of York, which included nine local municipalities.

The regional municipality encompasses the communities of Aurora, East Gwillimbury, Georgina, King, Markham, Newmarket, Richmond Hill, Vaughan and Whitchurch-Stouffville.
