The Government of Canada is investing $705,048 in 16 Newfoundland and Labrador 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 Town of Howley, the Town of Cormack, and the Town of Reidville will create asset registers for fixed infrastructure assets such as water, sewer, and road networks as well as buildings and facilities using a geographical information system (GIS). They will also develop operational strategies and policies.
- The Town of Humber Arm South will implement a three-phase asset management initiative. First, it will create an asset register for its fixed infrastructure assets using a geographical information system (GIS). Next, the town will prioritize the asset registry in terms of consequence of failure and probability of failure. To complete the initiative, the town will complete a feasibility and planning assessment.
“Investments in infrastructure asset management projects are important for ensuring the success of all residents in Newfoundland and Labrador. The funding our community will receive from the Municipal Asset Management Program will help us ensure we have the technology and resources we need to make evidence-based decisions for long term planning.” The Honourable Gudie Hutchings, Minister of Rural Economic Development and Member of Parliament for Long Range Mountains
