MIRARCO Received FCM’s Climate Adaptation Partner Grant

MIRARCO Received Climate Adaptation Partner Grant

As the severity of wildfires increases, shorelines flood, and extreme weather becomes more common, the effects of climate change unfold differently in Canadian cities and communities from coast to coast. That’s why FCM has provided grants to 12 organizations that will help participating communities of all sizes — from all regions of Canada — adapt to effects of climate change.

The funding, known as climate adaptation partner grants, will enable the partner organizations to provide training and guidance on how to adapt to climate change to more than 70 municipalities across Canada. The grants, totaling $2.4 million, are delivered through FCM’s Municipalities for Climate Innovation Program and funded by the Government of Canada.

MIRARCO will conduct vulnerability and risk assessments and supporting the implementation of climate adaptation plans.
