Climate and Asset Management Network
Call for applications now open
Apply today to join FCM's Climate and Asset Management Network. This new initiative provides a combination of peer-learning opportunities, grant funding and training to help Canadian municipalities better integrate climate change and sustainability goals into decision-making about infrastructure assets and services, such as roads, buildings, drinking water and sanitation.
The goal is to ensure cities and communities of all sizes can provide the best environmental, economic and social value for Canadians over the long term. The Climate and Asset Management Network is offered through FCM's new Municipalities for Climate Innovation Program and funded by the Government of Canada.
