Today, we are proud to release the Green Municipal Fund (GMF) Annual Report 2018–2019, A year of bold investments.
Now in its 19th year, GMF is a national sustainability leader, dedicated to supporting municipalities in improving residents’ quality of life. The 2018–2019 report features examples of funded initiatives and their benefit to communities of all sizes across Canada. From major energy retrofits for GTA residents, to funding Nova Scotia’s longest scenic bike path, you’ll discover how GMF initiatives are boldly transforming cities and communities from coast to coast to coast.
The release of our annual report follows the Government of Canada’s Budget 2019 announcement of an additional $950 million investment in GMF’s endowment. This funding will help Canadian municipalities face growing environmental challenges while making life more secure and affordable.
FCM’s Green Municipal Fund is a scalable, flexible and responsive solution to environmental issues in Canadian municipalities. Through its unique mix of training, resources and funding, GMF fuels local initiatives that build better lives for Canadians—while tackling pressing environmental and climate challenges.
