Leadership in Brownfield Renewal Program

Revitalize Your Brownfields

The Leadership in Brownfield Renewal (LiBRe) program is a network of Canadian municipalities that are committed to bringing their brownfield sites back into productive use. Offered through the Federation of Canadian Municipalities' (FCM) Green Municipal Fund, the program helps communities build capacity to facilitate brownfield redevelopment. Municipalities that join LiBRe benefit from peer learning activities, networking opportunities and knowledge resources.

How the program works

LiBRe members engage in online learning activities with their peers and other brownfield experts, and participate in annual face-to-face workshops. They share materials developed through a guided, collaborative learning process and report their progress to GMF. Knowledge is shared within the LiBRe network and among other municipalities through FCM's channels.

LiBRe is designed for municipalities at various stages of pursuing brownfield redevelopment: from those ready to start taking action, to those with experience in revitalizing underused sites.

We are no longer accepting applications to the LiBRe program, but we encourage you to consult the program resources featured below.
