Virtual event


FCM’s 2021 Sustainable Communities Conference will be held from October 19-21. Like last year, it will be a fully virtual event featuring inspiring speakers, thoughtful discussions, interactive workshops and a variety of networking opportunities. Last year's conference had over 500 attendees, and we're hoping our 2021 edition will bring together even more sustainability champions from across the country.

At SCC 2021, you'll get hands-on tools and knowledge while exploring issues fundamental to building equitable, sustainable communities, including Canada’s path to net-zero by 2050, and small community and nature-based solutions. Join hundreds of municipal leaders, staff, and community partners to learn best practices and gain new insights on how to tackle your community’s most pressing sustainability challenges.

You will:

  • Deepen your knowledge of energy efficiency, climate mitigation and adaptation and other sustainability topics.
  • Network with fellow sustainability champions through the virtual conference platform.
  • Access relevant tools and knowledge through our workshops and interactive training sessions.
  • Connect with resourceful industry leaders and partners who can help you get the job done.
  • Hear from Canada’s leading sustainability leaders and acclaimed keynote speakers.
  • Meet experts at our diverse Industry Showcase with exclusive access to vetted sustainability professionals that meet and exceed GMF’s high performance environmental targets.
