Our programs

GREEN COMMUNITIES have developed excellent programs that are coordinated through the national organization and delivered together by Green Communities Canada, member organizations, and other delivery partners.

Our unique “joint program” model enables the best of both worlds:

  • community-based delivery, close to where people live, leveraging local partnerships and opportunities
  • national program support, including program development, research and resources, training, and senior partnerships
