Next FCM Sustainable Communities Awards to be held in 2018

The next installment of FCM's Sustainable Communities Awards will be presented at our next Sustainable Communities Conference, set for February 2018, in Ottawa, ON.

The Sustainable Communities Awards program is on hiatus for 2017 while we work to enhance our capacity-building activities, and align with the roll-out of new FCM national programs.

The call for award applications is now closed. Details on the next application process will be announced in early 2017.

About FCM's Sustainable Communities Awards

FCM's Sustainable Communities Awards celebrate the best sustainability and environmental initiatives in municipalities of all sizes and regions across Canada. Established in 2000, the awards generate national and local recognition for sustainability projects that take an integrated approach, leading to environmental, economic and social benefits.

The awards are open to all municipal governments and their private-sector partners and are presented in six categories: energy, transportation, waste, water, neighbourhood development and brownfields.
