Through GMF, municipalities have built better transportation assets; constructed efficient and resilient buildings; diverted waste from landfill; made previously unusable land available for development; and improved soil and water quality. GMF also strengthens the capacity of Canadian municipalities to plan and invest in innovative, sustainable infrastructure, thereby saving millions of dollars for taxpayers and creating jobs that contribute to local economies. GMF shares the lessons and expertise gained from these initiatives through skills-enhancement, training and knowledge-sharing activities including case studies, manuals and reports, webinars, the FCM Sustainable Communities Awards and the FCM Sustainable Communities Conference. These activities help other communities replicate the successes of GMF-funded initiatives, multiplying the benefits of those initiatives across the country.
