2010 Winners

Since 2000, best practices in sustainable community development have been celebrated each year with the FCM Sustainable Community Awards. The Awards are open to all municipal governments and their private-sector partners.

FCM’s Green Municipal Fund is the primary sponsor of the Sustainable Community Awards. Affordability and Choice Today (ACT) program sponsors the residential development category. Awards are presented in eight categories: brownfields, buildings, energy, planning, residential development, transportation, waste and water.

The 2010 Sustainable Community Award Winners were announced at a special event on Saturday, May 29, as part of FCM’s 73rd Annual Conference and Municipal Trade Show at the Sheraton Centre in Toronto.
