The Green Municipal Fund (GMF) is a $625 million permanent endowment from the Government of Canada to the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM). GMF offers funding and knowledge to local governments and their partners for sustainable municipal infrastructure projects designed to support communities’ efforts to improve air, water and soil quality and to protect the climate. 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.
A key source of enabling funding for local governments, GMF grants are allocated to plans, feasibility studies and pilot projects, while below-market loans, usually in combination with grants, are allocated to capital projects. An efficient and rigorous process ensures that only the best, most innovative projects are approved. GMF has therefore been a test bed for some of the most innovative, cutting edge infrastructure projects in North America.

The incumbent will also lead the development of a vision and roadmap towards optimal environmental, social and economic benefits for Canadian communities of all sizes and regions across GMF’s market segments. Within these focus areas, the incumbent will support the development and effective mobilization of a national network of partners; financial de-risking approaches; and supporting knowledge, decision-making and project execution tools to enable the accelerated transformation of the sector towards more sustainable practices.
