FCM’s Green Municipal Fund (GMF) Council has created a new committee to advise the Council on matters related to the Low Carbon Cities Canada (LC3)-FCM initiative. This committee will provide strategic guidance and oversight to this first-of-its-kind partnership between seven local not-for-profit centres, supported by FCM in its role as the LC3 National Office.
