Green Communities Canada is a membership organization.
A membership organization is, in many ways, a service organization: looking after the needs of its members and providing resources and supports that increase collective impact.
As a formal membership organization, GCC is governed with contribution from our members. They do this by electing the Board of Directors, approving changes in the by-laws, and authorizing major structural transitions.
- networking and peer learning
- access to funding and capacity building opportunities
- services to support joint programming, and
- innovative program and policy leadership.
Our members are organizations that deliver a wide range of environmental programs and services. They are incorporated non-profits, with paid staff, volunteer boards, and strong partnerships, who lead on-the-ground change in their communities.
