Municipalities are on the front lines of climate change. From forest fires to ice storms to flooding, cities and communities are where the economic and human costs of global warming hit hardest. They’re also where you’ll find some of Canada’s most innovative green solutions.
We empower local sustainability leaders in important ways. On Parliament Hill, we advocate for green infrastructure investments that support local climate action. Across the country, our Green Municipal Fund, Municipalities for Climate Innovation Program and Partners for Climate Protection program provide critical funding, training and resources to help municipalities become more sustainable and adapt to new weather extremes.
Climate change is the single biggest challenge of our time. With municipalities influencing roughly half of Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions, it's essential to scale up local solutions. Together, we can build a greener and more prosperous Canada—one resilient, low-carbon community at a time.
