About US

The Green Communities story

Green Communities Canada, founded in 1995, works with member organizations and partners to deliver innovative and practical community programs, with big wins for environment, health, economy, and infrastructure.

Our diverse programs address home energy efficiency, green infrastructure approaches to stormwater management, active school travel, and more. Our members deliver dozens of other dynamic programs of their own.

GCC is a national non-profit, based in Peterborough, Ontario, with staff in Ottawa, Toronto, and Hamilton. We have a 12-member national board of directors, and 15 member organizations across the country.

We have a charitable affiliate, the Green Communities Foundation.
