Canada and FCM support strengthened asset management in Nova Scotia communities

Ottawa — 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 $97,560 in two Nova Scotia communities through the Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP), delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM). These initiatives will help communities make data-driven decisions about key infrastructure and ensure long-term infrastructure performance.

With funding from MAMP:

The Municipality of Annapolis County receives $50,000 to consolidate an inventory of the town’s major assets including linear assets, buildings/structures and fleet. Renewal and replacement projects will be prioritized through a risk assessment process to support a preliminary capital program for the town. Standard operating procedures will be prepared to support ongoing maintenance of the asset management program.
The Town of Digby receives $47,560 to complete an inventory of the town’s major assets that will include attribute data such as age, condition, and material. The information will be set up in spreadsheet format as well as geographic information system (GIS). State of Infrastructure Reports will be prepared in an easy to read and understand format.
