Green Municipal Fund

2 March 2016 - Ottawa, ON - The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) welcomes the announcement by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to expand the role of FCM in supporting municipalities to reach low-carbon and resilience objectives.

"Today's announcement speaks to the federal government's commitment to addressing climate change and FCM is extremely pleased to be called upon to deliver positive solutions in communities from coast to coast to coast," stated FCM President Raymond Louie.

Local governments have direct or indirect influence over close to 50 per cent of all greenhouse gas emissions in Canada. Through a combination of climate change mitigation and adaptation programming, this new investment will help build cities and communities that lower GHG emissions and are more resilient.
