Antoine Tardiff was recently assigned new responsibilities at the Canadian Federation of Municipalities. He was appointed as the Deputy Chairman of the Standing Committee on Environmental Issues and Sustainable Development.
He will also sit at the table of the Standing Committee on Finance, Infrastructure and Transport. Elected to the FCM Board of Directors last May, the Mayor of Victoria is proud to have been entrusted with these important roles so quickly.
“I am very pleased that my peers at the Canadian Federation of Municipalities have recognized Victoria’s leadership and expertise in sustainable development. This committee is instrumental in increasing our influence with other Canadian municipalities. It is also an invaluable forum to promote the initiatives and activities of our city and our partners, while gathering valuable information on best practices across the country,” he stated.
It won’t take long for the mayor of Victoria to find his place in the world of Quebec and Canadian municipalities. These duties are in addition to his position as First Vice-President of the Fédération québécoise des Municipalités and as President of the MRC of Center Québec.
The Canadian Federation of Municipalities plays a very important role in the world of municipalities. It is both a forum for discussion and consultation, as well as an important representative body at various levels of government. FCM unites and consolidates more than 2,100 municipalities from coast to coast. It covers many issues, including federal investments in municipal infrastructure, housing, transportation, rural broadband, climate change adaptation, and several other sectors.
