Together with Canada’s local governments, we've secured unprecedented federal investments in local priorities. We've shown that empowered municipal leaders are true nation builders. It's time to take the next step—and you can be a part of it.

Upcoming federal decisions will transform our cities and communities. Let's seize the historic opportunities in front of us by making sure we have a strong and united voice at the table. Join us as we work together to build a more prosperous, livable and sustainable Canada.
