The Green Municipal Fund (GMF) is a unique program that provides funding and knowledge services to support sustainable community development. GMF-supported initiatives aim to improve air, water, and soil, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
We support the very best examples of leadership and innovation by championing initiatives that can generate new lessons and models for municipalities of all sizes and types in all regions of Canada. These initiatives offer significant environmental benefits, a strong business case and social advantages, complemented by local policies and measurement systems.
Through GMF, FCM funds four types of municipal environmental initiatives in five sectors of municipal activity. We share the lessons and expertise gained through these initiatives through a suite of skills enhancement, training and knowledge sharing activities to encourage other communities to replicate their success. GMF is governed by a 15-member GMF Council. Meet our Council members.
