GMF's Brownfield Roadmaps provide a detailed overview of the process of bringing contaminated or abandoned sites back into productive use in your province or territory.

Developed in close consultation with provincial and territorial governments, each roadmap provides you with an easy-to-follow path through three focus areas:

  • Process: the steps typically followed when redeveloping a brownfield site in Canada
  • Legislation: provincial/territorial laws and policy requirements associated with each step in the process
  • Funding: financial support and incentive programs available to municipalities and their partners

Read our roadmaps to:

  • Know the steps involved in a brownfield redevelopment project and be better prepared to avoid potential delays or cost overruns.
  • Learn where to look for funding, including grants and incentive programs.
  • Structure your discussions and consultations with project stakeholders.
  • Improve your understanding of the brownfields regulatory framework in your province.
