It's tough to make decisions about maintaining, replacing and repairing municipal infrastructure. You have to weigh your community's budgetary needs against critical services such as roads, arenas, bridges, drinking water and wastewater systems.

To make good decisions, you need accurate data. You also need to know how your community may grow and how changing weather patterns could affect your assets. We can show you how to gather that data and make solid asset-related decisions.

We do that by focusing on four areas:

  • Getting municipalities to use good asset management practices.
  • Supporting training and workshops in your community.
  • Helping you plan for and conduct data collection and analysis.
  • Gathering and sharing your knowledge and lessons learned.

Asset management helps communities like yours manage municipal infrastructure assets and make better investment decisions. It also helps you reduce risks so you can provide reliable and affordable services and a high quality of life to your residents.

Apply for our funding, make use of our training and resources and access great lessons learned from communities across Canada. Note that we offer partner grants to non-municipal organizations that help FCM implement programs, create resources, or offer training or information-sharing activities related to asset management.
