Advocacy Days
November Ottawa, ON

Each November, FCM's elected board members from across Canada converge on Ottawa for several intensive days of meetings with parliamentarians. It's a significant peak in our advocacy cycle, just before federal budget season, where we bring our united municipal voice to all national parties. In recent years, we have achieved unprecedented results for Canadians, our communities and our economy.
