We facilitate collaboration

We facilitate collaboration. NSFM believes working together is critical to help our province grow and our communities succeed. NSFM collaborates with its members, other levels of government and stakeholders.

We facilitate advocacy

NSFM believes our collective voice will have an impact leading to changes that better support our communities and our province. We work to bring our collective views together, to prioritize the areas of most concern, to develop meaningful recommendations, and to organize events that reach out to other orders of government.

We facilitate education

NSFM works to help municipal councils better understand issues and opportunities. It does this through our events, bringing people together and sharing of ideas. It also does this through the work of committees in developing toolkits and templates, the sharing of research documents, and the sharing of best practices.
