Canada’s federal government recently committed $1 billion to drive low-carbon innovation in communities across Canada. The funding will be managed and distributed by the Green Municipal Fund (GMF), an incredibly successful sustainability program run here at FCM, the national voice for Canada’s local governments. Needless to say, there’s plenty of exciting work happening on the GMF team, and it’s growing quickly.
Since 2000, we’ve used a major federal endowment to help municipalities across Canada get over 1,250 GMF-funded projects off the ground. These practical environmental solutions resulted in cleaner air, clean drinking water, more efficient energy systems, reclaimed toxic sites and more. So far, these projects have kept 2.5 million tonnes of GHG emissions out of our atmosphere.
We’re recruiting exceptional people to work with our GMF team and help Canada achieve its climate change goals. If you work with us, you’ll support Canadian municipalities as they launch greener community buildings, energy-efficient affordable housing and home retrofitting programs, to name a few. These projects make life more secure and affordable for everyone.
At FCM, we invest significant time and energy in making sure our staff have an outstanding organizational culture and work environment. Our collective efforts strive to build a workplace that fosters teamwork; respect; inclusivity; diversity; equity; and a healthy work environment that enriches the overall FCM experience.
GMF is already a Canadian success story and a national leader in sustainability. Now we're scaling up energy-efficiency and clean energy solutions nationwide.
