Green Municipal Fund

The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) has provided funding for capital projects that mitigate the impacts of climate change, including retrofits, construction, replacement, expansion, or purchase and installation of fixed assets or infrastructure.  The projects demonstrate an innovative solution or approach to a municipal environmental issue, and offer significant environmental benefits, a strong business case and social advantages, and are complemented by local policies and measurement systems.

  • Low-interest loan for up to 80% of eligible project costs, to a maximum of $5 million (or $10 million for high-ranking projects)
  • Grant amount set at 15% of the loan

Applications are accepted year-round, but approval dates are made twice a year.

Project Implementation Funding

Up to 75% of the incremental cost of energy efficiency projects to help implement efficiency projects. The funding level is also based on a tiered approach, meaning projects that were previously too costly may now be eligible for richer incentives.

Building needs to be electrically heated.
