We make communities stronger
30 years of local government engagement on a global scale
FCM's international programs have been putting local government at the heart of Canada's international development efforts since 1987.

Canada's connection to a global network of municipalities
FCM pairs Canadian municipal experts with their counterparts in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean to share knowledge, solve problems, deliver services and forge closer connections.
Our international initiatives promote economic development, empower local governments and encourage civic participation. We work with municipalities to strengthen their private sectors and help them become more environmentally sustainable. When natural disasters strike, we lend local governments the expertise they need to respond, recover and restore safety and security.
