Ottawa – The Government of Canada is investing over $1.6 million in 36 British Columbia 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:
- Skawahlook First Nation will develop an asset management strategy and collect infrastructure data.
- The District of Squamish will improve the existing asset management plan by integrating newly collected data as well as considering risk and levels of service, to build a long-term financial model.
- The Township of Spallumcheen will install a system to combine geographic information system (GIS) data, manage data, visualize important asset management information, and foster information sharing.
“Municipalities manage our water, sewer and storm systems, many of our roads, along with other critical infrastructure pieces. Data-driven tools are key to ensuring the sound, long-term management of these assets. We’re proud to invest in infrastructure asset management projects that help communities in British Columbia grow, strengthen their local economy and improve residents’ quality of life.” The Honourable Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities
