Empowering Change

The Municipal Climate Change Action Centre empowers municipalities in Alberta to be leaders in climate change solutions.

See how over 25% of municipalities in Alberta have created real savings and real change in their communities.

City, town, village, county, municipal district—no community and no project is too big or too small. Municipalities are even working together to plan for their future.

Since 2009…

130 Alberta municipalities have participated across all programs

400 municipal projects completed with Action Centre funding

227,000tonnes lifetime greenhouse gas emissions avoided

Small Changes

Make a huge difference.

Upgrading lighting, thermostats and HVAC, installing solar PV systems, implementing weatherization measures, integrating electric vehicles into the municipal fleet, and hiring an energy manager—it all adds up to making a real difference for Alberta.

This is what a municipal public works staff member had to say about participating in our programs:

“We should see significant savings from a fuel perspective, and also from a social wellness perspective, knowing that we’re reducing emissions and that we are taking the next step, being kind of trailblazers in the area.”

Knowledge is Power

We are here to support municipalities every step of the way.

We are different from other grant programs. Our team is here to talk to you, one on one, about your project and provide expert advice to help you achieve your climate action and budgetary goals.

A Chief Administrative Officer from Alberta had this to say about working with us:

“Partnering with the MCCAC and the solar contractor has been a positive experience for our community. Both organizations were extremely professional and worked collaboratively to reduce the amount of time and staff resources we had to give to complete the project.”
