Feds, FCM fund pair of Toronto net zero studies

TORONTO — The Government of Canada and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) are providing a $175,000 investment through FCM’s Green Municipal Fund (GMF) to support a transition to low-carbon and renewable energy for the City of Toronto.

The City is receiving $29,000 to study the best solution for designing a net zero energy building for the North East Scarborough Community and Child Care Centre, located at 8450 Sheppard Avenue in Scarborough, Ont. The study has now been completed and construction is underway.

The City is also receiving $146,000 for a similar study for the Western North York Community & Child Care Centre at 60 Starview Lane.

Both studies incorporate strategies to deliver energy, water and waste reduction. The expected environmental benefits targeted by these studies are to achieve 100 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, indicates a release, adding the projects will also have economic development and productivity benefits that will contribute to the long-term financial stability and prosperity of the community.

“With support from the Green Municipal Fund, municipalities of all sizes are implementing smart sustainable solutions to improve their infrastructure; this is exactly what the City of Toronto is doing with their studies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions community and childcare centres in North East Scarborough and Western North York,” said FCM President Taneen Rudyk, in a statement.

“Together, we are building resilient communities, accelerating the path to net-zero and helping achieve Canada’s climate goals.”
