The Federation of Canadian Municipalities Launches The Great Canadian Infrastructure Challenge

November 7, 2012

The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) is launching The Great Canadian Infrastructure Challenge. This is the next phase of its efforts to make sure the new long-term infrastructure plan is part of the 2013 federal budget, and that it meets the needs of our cities and communities.

The Challenge will bring people from every corner of the country into the conversation about municipal infrastructure and its importance in our everyday lives. The campaign will demonstrate how Canadians use local infrastructure to raise their families, build their businesses and take part in their communities.  It all starts with the launch of the campaign’s website: fcmchallenge.ca. Please visit the site and invite members of your community to visit it too.

"We have a brief window of opportunity – just six to eight weeks – to make sure we get the plan and investments our communities need," said Karen Leibovici, FCM President.
