Canada's municipal leaders meet in Nelson to discuss federal municipal priorities ahead of parliament's return

Some of the nation's top municipal leaders will descend on Nelson next week as the Heritage city plays host to the Federation of Canadian Municipalities' (FCM) national board of directors meeting.

With parliament set to return, the 75-member board  — which includes Nelson Mayor John Dooley — will discuss municipal priorities from Sept. 7-10, including the development of a federal long-term infrastructure plan and the upcoming federal budget.

FCM's board of directors comprises elected municipal officials and affiliate members
from all regions and various-sized communities throughout Canada.

The board will be meeting at the Prestige Lakeside Resort.
