The Government of Canada endowed the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) with $675 million to establish the Green Municipal Fund. An additional $950 million top-up to this endowment was added to the Fund in 2019. As a leading catalyst for innovation at the local level, GMF offers funding (loans and grants) and knowledge to local governments and their partners for sustainable municipal infrastructure projects designed to support communities to improve air, water and soil quality and to protect the climate. GMF has been a test bed for some of the most innovative, cutting edge infrastructure projects in North America, including structured financing involving a combination of traditional and non-traditional lending techniques. 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, which contribute to local economies. GMF shares the lessons and expertise gained from funded 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 projects, multiplying the benefits of those projects across the country.
