Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Through FCM, municipal professionals from communities across Canada are contributing to Canada's international development efforts. Together, we are currently delivering nearly $19 million in development assistance each year, in 13 countries. Funding for our international initiatives is provided by Global Affairs Canada and through in-kind contributions from partner municipalities.
FCM and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Canada is committed to achieving the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. The Sustainable Development Goals are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
The involvement of local government is essential to achieving these goals. FCM and Canada's local governments are at the heart of Canada's international development efforts. Together, we connect municipal professionals from Canada and partner countries to the latest knowledge and practices, providing them with the opportunity to diversify their own skills and bringing a fresh perspective to their work. Here's how some of our program participants have worked with international partners towards shaping a better world.
