Green Municipal Fund - Brownfields Sector Funding


The Green Municipal Fund (GMF) offered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) provides funding and knowledge services to support sustainable community development. GMF-supported initiatives aim to improve air, water, and soil, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

They support examples of leadership and innovation by championing initiatives that can generate new lessons and models for municipalities of all sizes and types in all regions of Canada. These initiatives offer significant environmental benefits, a strong business case and social advantages, complemented by local policies and measurement systems.

The Brownfield Sector Funding assists communities to bring contaminated sites back into productive use and reduce the need for greenfield development. A brownfield is an abandoned, vacant, derelict or underutilized commercial, institutional or industrial property where past actions have resulted in actual or perceived contamination or a threat to public health and safety, and where there is an active potential for redevelopment.
