* Quebec municipalities are currently not permitted to receive funding from FCM's Municipalities for Climate Innovation Program and FCM's Municipal Asset Management Program. FCM is working with the province of Quebec's Ministère des Affaires municipales et de l'Occupation du territoire (MAMOT) to find a solution that will provide Quebec municipalities access to MAMP and MCIP funding as soon as possible. Should you have further questions about MAMOT's decision and programs available to Quebec municipalities please contact MAMOT.
