Real Savings.
Real Change.

The Municipal Climate Change Action Centre is a partnership of the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association and Rural Municipalities of Alberta. We care about how a changing climate impacts Alberta. We provide funding, technical assistance, and education to municipalities, schools, and community organizations, helping them lower energy costs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and improve climate resilience. Since 2009, our award-winning work has supported hundreds of projects.

Funding Programs

Alberta municipalities are doing more than changing their light bulbs.

They are generating their own energy, purchasing electric vehicles, completing energy audits, setting greenhouse gas emission reduction targets and more. Take action today with our funding programs.

Advisory Services

We support you every step of the way.

We offer one-on-one advisory services, as well as webinars, workshops, and other support to help municipalities reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and make progress on the Partners for Climate Protection Milestone Framework in partnership with the Federation for Canadian Municipalities and ICLEI Canada.
