The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) has been the national voice of municipal government since 1901. It is an organization made up of cities and communities from every corner of Canada, and is our chosen national voice. Through FCM, local governments listen to each other, to our partners and to decision-makers in the Government of Canada. Listening allows local governments to understand what is happening in big cities and small towns, what are the priorities of the federal government and how FCM can work effectively with our partners.

FCM unites local governments  and allows them to work side-by-side to identify challenges, analyze options and develop effective ways to overcome the issues all Canadian local governments face.

FCM talks credibly and strives to ensure federal decision-making reflects the needs of all Canadians.

Over the past months FCM has been putting together the Great Canadian Infrastructure Challenge.  Failing infrastructure is one of the main issues facing all local governments today. From the smallest rural area in Canada to the largest city, infrastructure is failing and must be repaired or replaced.  I am attaching an interactive link if you would like to learn more.  I support the FCM Great Canadian Infrastructure Challenge.
