The Partners for Climate Protection (PCP) program, from ICLEI—Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI Canada) and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, helps your municipality do its part. It consists of a five-step Milestone Framework that guides you as you take action against climate change by reducing emissions in your municipality. PCP receives funding from FCM's Green Municipal Fund and ICLEI Canada.

PCP membership is free and gives you access to tools, networking venues, events, case studies and other informational resources. Members also have access to a PCP Secretariat that offers coaching and technical assistance support.

Municipal governments influence or control half the sources of Canada’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. By taking action, there is an opportunity to save money in municipal operations, lower energy costs for residents and businesses, increase investment in the local economy, and improve community health and wellbeing.
