During  a speech to the Union des municipalités du Québec at its annual session in Gatineau, Jean Perrault, president of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) announced a Green Municipal Fund (GMF) grant of $2.1 million for sustainable development projects in 14 Quebec municipalities.

“FCM’s Green Municipal Fund offers a range of resources that specifically address the sustainable community development needs of municipal government,” said Perrault. “The financing and knowledge provided by the Fund supports the development of communities that are more environmentally, socially and economically sustainable.”

“FCM’s Green Municipal Fund allows municipalities to do their part by setting up innovative projects whose benefits will help improve the quality of life of the communities while being a source of inspiration for those who want to launch similar environmental initiatives,” said Robert Coulombe, president of the Union des municipalités du Québec and Mayor of Maniwaki, Quebec.
