FCM Sustainable Communities Awards
FCM offers national recognition for projects that demonstrate environmental responsibility and excellence.
Across Canada, municipal governments are implementing innovative projects that contribute to sustainable community development. Truly sustainable projects take a holistic, integrated approach, where economic, social and environmental factors are inextricably linked. Sustainable communities can take many forms: large or small, urban or rural, central or remote. Their paths to sustainability are equally varied.
Best practices in sustainable community development are celebrated each year with the FCM Sustainable Communities Awards program, established in 2000. The Awards are open to all municipal governments and their private-sector partners, and offer national recognition for the winning communities and projects through case studies, videos and news releases, generating national and local media attention. Join us in congratulating our 2015 winners, announced on November 17, 2014, and take some time to learn about their remarkable projects ahead of FCM's 2015 Sustainable Communities Conference! Stay tuned for our complete set of knowledge resources and plan to meet the winners in person at the SCC, where — for the first time — we've designed a workshop session to help you explore first-hand how their ideas and approaches could work in your community. We'll also be offering two free GMF webinars in mid-December and mid-January, featuring this year's winners.
