As municipalities, we're like most other organizations. We face a range of issues that make it difficult for us to do what we do - some we can conquer on our own and some we can't. By uniting as the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM), we harness the strength of close to 2,000 communities to overcome our issues together.
Issues directly affect the services we provide to our citizens. This means that our issues are your issues. They can be unsafe streets, contaminated drinking water, crumbling roads or a lack of affordable housing. They affect everyone in your community and impact your quality of life.

Coming soon: FCM's 2013 State of Canada's Cities and Communities Report
The Government of Canada's Budget 2013 delivered important gains for cities and communities: indexing of the Gas Tax Fund, a 10-year infrastructure funding commitment and a formalized federal-municipal partnership.
Where do Canada's municipalities stand as we head into this new era? Find out in the 2013 Report on the State of Canada's Cities and Communities, to be launched at FCM's Annual Conference and Trade Show.
