Canada and FCM invest in stronger asset management in Saskatchewan communities

From roads and buildings, to wastewater 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 $1.45 million in 38 Saskatchewan 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:

  • The Rural Municipality of Waverley No. 44 will complete an asset management program that will involve the physical inspection and evaluation of culverts and roadway assets. The program will include condition assessments, valuations, life-cycle analysis and projected replacement cost of each asset. The asset management plan will aid in decision-making when implementing asset maintenance and replacement programs and assist the Rural Municipality in future capital planning.
  • The Town of Porcupine Plain will set up an asset management framework that will include an updated policy and strategy, as well as development of a roadmap and plan to focus on road, water and sewer networks, and building asset classes. The Town will also train staff to improve in-house asset management capacity.
  • The City of Martensville will assess asset condition of roads, sidewalks & curbs, pathways, sanitary sewers, and storm water infrastructure and compile digitally existing assets condition information. The comprehensive drainage review will include development of a storm model for the city and the creation of the asset management program will provide a comprehensive plan to manage all asset classes and provide recommendations for the establishment and ongoing work of the city’s asset management program.
