FCM is launching The Great Canadian Infrastructure Challenge. This is the next phase of their 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.

There is a brief window of opportunity – just six to eight weeks – to make sure they get the plan and investments our communities need.
