AMO's Federal Gas Tax Awards

AMO's Federal Gas Tax Awards celebrate projects that demonstrate excellence in the use of the federal Gas Tax Fund and honour the communities that administer them. Municipal governments of all sizes in Ontario are invited to apply.

Recipients are recognized on the main stage of AMO's Annual Conference, profiled in an AMO news release, promoted through AMO's social media channels and featured in AMO's Annual Report on the federal Gas Tax Fund. AMO also produces a short video in recipients' communities to highlight winning projects.
