GMF helps Canadian municipalities and their partners switch to sustainable practices faster.
FCM’s Green Municipal Fund (GMF) turns 20 years old this year. For two decades, we’ve had the privilege of working alongside municipal governments, helping them reduce their greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) and manage the growing impacts of climate change.
With GMF funding, training and resources, municipalities and their partners have brought more than 1,360 sustainability projects to life.
That’s 1,360 ways local governments have protected their communities from flooding, restored contaminated sites to productive use, increased access to clean drinking water, reduced pollution, minimized waste and driven cost-saving energy efficiency. It’s also 1,360 ways municipalities have created significant employment opportunities, generating income for their residents and for Canada. GMF-funded projects and programs have employed thousands of Canadians in our first 20 years and will continue to do so in the years to come.
