FCM’s Big City Mayors’ Caucus meets to build tomorrow’s Canada (30/05/2018)

The Big City Mayors' Caucus (BCMC) has been driving real progress nationwide - including unprecedented investments in affordable housing and a transformative federal infrastructure plan. As the Federation of Canadian Municipalities' (FCM) Annual Conference kicks off, mayors from the nation's largest cities gather to discuss their nation-building agenda.

This year's BCMC meeting will discuss a range of issues that affect large urban centres from growth to climate change with a focus on exploring, strengthening and re-imagining the tools cities will need to build tomorrow's Canada.
