Canada and FCM support strengthened asset management in a Northwest Territories community


OTTAWA, ON, May 17, 2022 /CNW/ - 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 $50,000 in Dél??n? Got'ine Government, Northwest Territories through the Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP), delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM). This initiative will help the community make data-driven decisions about key infrastructure and ensure long-term infrastructure performance.

With funding from MAMP, the Dél?n? Got'ine Government will develop an asset management program that will include training, targets, and strategy to help build an asset management foundation. This initiative will be used to train the staff, develop a level of service framework, and collaboratively plan the asset management vision, goals, and targets. In addition, a workshop approach will bring the team together to collaborate and stay aligned.
