Since joining the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) 20 years ago, Mr. Carlton has established himself as a leader on municipal issues, both domestically and internationally. He managed ideas, resources and opportunities to build FCM’s global program, which focuses on strengthening municipal government and local governance, and on enhancing policy frameworks toward local sustainability. Mr. Carlton represented Canada on the OECD Urban Municipal Development Secretariat’s Sustainable Cities Working Group in the early 1990s. He was a faculty member of the Local Government Leadership Institute at the Banff School of Management and of the Cambridge University Business and Environment Seminar (the latter, delivered for national government leaders in Wales). Mr. Carlton currently sits on the Leadership Council for Carleton University’s School of Public Policy and Administration. He is also leading an initiative for sustainable living in Ottawa West, to bring a Bike Share program to his community. Brock has a master’s degree in International Affairs from the Norman Patterson School at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario.
