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.
“Across the country, communities of all sizes are gearing up for life post-pandemic. They’re working to enhance their infrastructure and natural assets so they can continue to have sustainable and reliable services to improve residents’ quality of life. Ensuring local governments have the right tools to make sound asset management decisions is one way we can help drive Canada’s economic recovery.” Joanne Vanderheyden, President, Federation of Canadian Municipalities
