Regina, SK – The Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ Annual Conference and Trade Show is back with a unique hybrid format. Mayors, councillors, and municipal representatives from across the country are gathering in Regina or online from June 2 to 5. This will be the fullest national gathering of municipal leaders since 2019.

This year’s Annual Conference theme Together for Recovery reinforces the essential role of municipalities as drivers for a strong and inclusive recovery. Canada’s recovery needs to be rooted in our communities – the places where Canadians live, work and raise families. These are the places where local leaders are turning transformative ideas into stronger economies and better lives for people.

Throughout the course of the conference, delegates will hear from noteworthy speakers from federal political parties; each highlighting the importance of the federal-municipal partnership.
