Ottawa, May 2, 2022- Managing municipal infrastructure effectively is vital to Canada's economic competitiveness. Municipalities of all sizes need good asset management practices to build and maintain resilient and sustainable communities for all Canadians.
That is why the Government of Canada is investing $997,123 in 21 Ontario communities through the Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP), delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM). These initiatives will help communities make data-driven decisions about key infrastructure and ensure long-term infrastructure performance.
With funding from MAMP:
- The Township of Mattice-Val Cote will develop an asset management plan and implement Citywide Asset Manager software. The development and implementation of this software will allow the township to gain an advanced understanding of the assets' performance and effectively plan for future maintenance based on data-driven decisions.
- The Municipality of Gordon/Barrie Island will implement asset management software and develop an asset management plan that will comply with provincial regulations. The development of an asset management plan will be critical in enhancing the overall understanding of the asset management program and asset data. Further, the implementation of asset management software will be a critical piece in continuing to advance the asset data.
- The City of Kitchener will continue the development of the overall Facilities Infrastructure Program. The project will deliver a state of facilities infrastructure report and an asset management plan for Kitchener facilities to meet provincial regulations in 2023 and 2024. A more comprehensive roadmap implementation would then follow, leveraging the framework completed in the asset management plan phase.
Further information on the 21 initiatives can be found in the backgrounder.
