About capital projects
A capital project involves the retrofitting, construction, replacement, expansion, or purchase and installation of fixed assets or infrastructure that will improve environmental performance in municipal, energy, transportation, waste, or water, or some combination of these sectors. Brownfield capital projects involve soil remediation or risk management to bring contaminated land into productive use.
Through GMF, FCM supports capital projects that demonstrate an innovative solution or approach to a municipal environmental issue – projects that can generate new lessons and models for municipalities of all sizes and types in all regions of Canada. These projects offer significant environmental benefits, a strong business case and social advantages, while being complemented by local policies and measurement systems.
