Join the largest pan-Canadian gathering of elected officials
The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) has been the national voice of municipal government since 1901.
With over 2,000 members, FCM represents the interests of municipalities on policy and program matters that fall within federal jurisdiction. Members include Canada's largest cities, small urban and rural communities, and 19 provincial and territorial municipal associations.
FCM is encouraged by the steps that have been taken to date, including a new liability and insurance regime and the announcement of new standards for railway tank cars, but these are only part of the solution. FCM will continue to actively engage the federal government on further reforms that improve the safety of Canada's railways and reduce risks to communities.
FCM's Leadership in Asset Management Program is an exciting new initiative that combines Green Municipal Fund grant funding with peer learning to support innovation in municipal asset management.
Has your community undertaken a sustainability plan, program, or project that merits national recognition? Apply for a 2016 Sustainable Communities Award and let FCM shine a light on your success.
The Municipal Youth Engagement Handbook, developed by the 2014 FCM Jack Layton Fellows with input from local governments across Canada, was created to encourage youth participation in their communities.
