WEBINAR: Managing stormwater through low impact development

NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.


Join FCM;s free webinar on June 22 to discuss options and strategies for implementing green stormwater infrastructure — or low impact development (LID) — in your community. You’ll hear experts explain how LID provides an effective, affordable solution to the challenges of conventional grey stormwater infrastructure.

This session will touch on case studies from cities across North America. Featured success stories will include the City of Mississauga’s stormwater credits and incentives program, and how the City of Montreal incorporates green stormwater infrastructure into parks, parking lots and streetscapes.

You’ll learn how:

  • Policies and programs can be used by Canadian municipalities to implement green stormwater infrastructure across the landscape.
  • Municipal stormwater charges can incent and enable the implementation of LID at both the property and municipal level.
  • Green stormwater management best practices, such as bioswales and bioretention, can be incorporated into the design of urban parks, streets and parking lots.

Speakers include:

  • Clifford Maynes, Green Communities Canada
  • Dr. Victoria Kramkowski, City of Mississauga
  • Mélanie Glorieux, Groupe Rousseau Lefebvre

This webinar is presented by FCM’s Green Municipal Fund and Green Communities Canada.

Sign up even if you can’t attend – we’ll send the recording to all registrants.
