Showcase your municipal project at #SCC2023

Canada’s leading sustainability event for municipal sustainability changemakers and champions

Local governments and their community partners are leaders in bringing sustainability projects to life. FCM’s Sustainable Communities Conference (SCC) provides the perfect platform to connect with elected officials and municipal staff, increase brand awareness, and promote your sustainability offerings in the sector. Sponsors and exhibitors can showcase their organization as a sustainability innovator and champion— while enhancing the overall conference experience. Our sponsors and exhibitors are part of making FCM’s SCC the country’s leading sustainability event for municipal sustainability changemakers and champions.

As a sponsor and/or exhibitor, you will:

  • Connect with municipal sustainability leaders. Engage and build relationships with more than 400 municipal decision-makers who influence and make buying decisions in the area of sustainable development. 
  • Increase awareness. Position yourself as a leader and innovator among energy, climate and sustainability professionals. 
  • Drive your business forward. Take advantage of multiple networking opportunities to showcase your product, service or initiative.  

Should your organization want to get involved in this year’s event, we do have some requirements, the main one being that you align with the Green Municipal Fund (GMF) sub-sector visions (see p.10) and the second that your solutions/project showcase fits within the overall environmental performance standards of the fund. This is the baseline for ensuring relevance with the audience and creating an environment where all stakeholders will benefit.
