Brock Carlton joined FCM more than 25 years ago. Since then, he has established himself as a leading voice on municipal issues, both domestically and internationally. As the CEO, Brock leads a strong team of staff and a united membership in advancing municipal interests by influencing both federal government decisions and national debates on issues that are critical to communities.
He has built partnerships with private sector interests, professional associations, not-for-profit organizations and the academic community in order to speak as one united voice about the priorities of municipal government. Under Brock’s tenure, the municipal sector in Canada has seen dramatic increases in federal investments, as well as recognition for the vital role it plays in our national interest. As a result, FCM is now recognized as one of the most influential organizations in Canada.
Brock is a dynamic and passionate speaker on municipal issues and federal-municipal relations. He believes that strong nations engage their municipal governments as true partners in nation building, and that they invest in their cities and communities as a means of solving local and national challenges.
