From roads and buildings, to waste water systems – strong asset management is key to building stronger communities. Municipalities of all sizes need tools and resources to make evidence-based decisions that support long-term asset management and build a healthier, safer and more prosperous future for all Canadians.
That is why the Government of Canada is investing over $1.6 million in 36 British Columbia communities through the Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP), delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM). As Canada moves toward a strong recovery, these projects will help communities make data-driven decisions about key infrastructure, and ensure long-term infrastructure performance.
With funding from MAMP:
- Skawahlook First Nation will develop an asset management strategy and collect infrastructure data.
- The District of Squamish will improve the existing asset management plan by integrating newly collected data as well as considering risk and levels of service, to build a long-term financial model.
- The Township of Spallumcheen will install a system to combine geographic information system (GIS) data, manage data, visualize important asset management information, and foster information sharing.
