The Government of Canada is investing $590,510 in 17 New Brunswick 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 City of Edmundston will collect data on the electrical distribution network assets present in the city and the Madawaska Maliseet First Nation and store and manage the asset information digitally with spatial modeling in an Enterprise-GIS system. This modeling will help the city to improve management of the electrical distribution network.
- The City of Miramichi will complete condition assessments on the following City owned buildings: Police Station, City Hall mechanical system, Miratech mechanical system, Miramichi Civic Centre roof, Lord Beaverbrook Arena roof, and Loggieville sewer lagoon.
- The Town of Quispamsis will study and assess the condition of outdoor park and recreation assets in the town. The study will provide the town with an asset inventory data standard for outdoor recreation sites, a condition assessment program, replacement cost estimating, useful life estimating, and criticality rating guidelines.
“When we strengthen our municipalities, we strengthen our province. Through the Municipal Asset Management Program, towns and cities across New Brunswick will have access to new tools to enhance the management of the infrastructure they oversee. From arenas to civic centres, municipal infrastructure is often where communities gather. Our Government will continue to invest in data-driven solutions to ensure communities have the tools they need to maintain those key assets.” The Honourable Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities
