GuideCanadian municipalities are reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through pilot projects, municipal programs, and more. However, financing these initiatives can be a significant challenge.

Our toolkit explains how your municipality can leverage private and community investors to help you take action on climate change in your community.

You will learn how you can:

  • Harness people power through group purchasing and community owned renewable power
  • Break the capital barriers with local improvements and energy performance contracts
  • Create a funding cycle with green revolving funds and Green bonds  

This guide is designed for municipalities completing Milestones 3 and 4 of the Partners for Climate Protection program – a partnership between ICLEI — Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI Canada) and FCM – but is applicable for communities of all sizes across Canada.
