FCM Sustainable Communities Awards
FCM President Brad Woodside congratulates the winners of the 2015 Sustainable Communities Awards for their leadership, and reflects on FCM's work through the Green Municipal Fund to build capacity for municipal sustainability.
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 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 find out about their remarkable projects ahead of FCM's 2015 Sustainable Communities Conference! Read our case studies profiling winning initiatives and stay tuned for more knowledge resources. Be sure to join us for two free GMF webinars in mid-January, featuring presentations by this year's award recipients. 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.
