Climate and Asset Management Network

FCM's climate and asset management network

Call for applications is closed

FCM's Climate and Asset Management Network provides a combination of peer-learning opportunities, grant funding and training to help Canadian municipalities better integrate climate change and sustainability goals into decision-making about infrastructure assets and services, such as roads, buildings, drinking water and sanitation.

The goal is to ensure cities and communities of all sizes can provide the best environmental, economic and social value for Canadians over the long term. The Climate and Asset Management Network is offered through FCM's new Municipalities for Climate Innovation Program and funded by the Government of Canada. 

Access grant funding and learn from your peers

This initiative is designed for municipalities that are taking an active role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to the realities of climate change, and also want to integrate climate change goals into their asset management planning.

Participants will:

  • Access funding of up to $175,000 to support eligible asset management initiatives.
  • Collaborate closely with a group of 10 to 15 municipalities from across Canada.
  • Be connected to a national network of professionals and asset management resources.

The Climate and Asset Management Network is adapted from FCM's Leadership in Asset Management Program, offered from 2015 to 2017, and has similar features and goals.

More asset management funding and training options

FCM's Municipal Asset Management Program also offers Canadian municipalities other funding and training opportunities related to asset management and infrastructure planning. Learn more.
