We make communities stronger

Our efforts to help create strong local governments and inclusive communities around the world would not be possible without the support of municipal experts from across Canada.

Canada's connection to a global network of municipalities
FCM pairs Canadian municipal experts with their counterparts in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean to share knowledge, solve problems, deliver services and forge closer connections.
Our international initiatives promote economic development, empower local governments and encourage civic participation. We work with municipalities to strengthen their private sectors and help them become more environmentally sustainable. When natural disasters strike, we lend local governments the expertise they need to respond, recover and restore safety and security.
