FCM Sustainable Communities Awards
FCM offers national recognition for projects that demonstrate environmental responsibility and excellence.
FCM President Claude Dauphin congratulates the winners of the 2014 Sustainable Communities Awards for their leadership, and reflects on the role of FCM and the Green Municipal Fund in providing national recognition for municipal achievements in sustainability.
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. The recognition offered by the Sustainable Communities Awards program can generate national and local media attention for the winning communities and projects.
Featured Award Winners
The Awards were announced at a reception and awards ceremony during FCM's Sustainable Communities Conference and Trade Show (SCC) in Charlottetown, PE.
