2004 Winners

Since 2000, the FCM Sustainable Community Awards have celebrated the achievements of municipal leaders who are not only putting green ideas into practice, but reaping the benefits.

This year FCM recognized 11 outstanding winners in eight categories. As the order of government that is closest to Canadian citizens, municipalities are integral in helping meet commitments for significant and long-term change. They are providing real solutions and leading the way on the road to sustainability.

Congratulations to the winners of the 2004 FCM Sustainability Community Awards — the large and small, urban and rural communities across Canada that are working toward a more sustainable future.
