InfraGuide: National guide to sustainable municipal infrastructure is a collection of technical best practices and principles to help better inform municipal staff and decision-makers in infrastructure management. 

Based on Canadian expertise and research, InfraGuide addresses key areas in infrastructure planning, providing a range of resources from highly technical guides to strategic planning tools. Technical staff can explore the principles and best practices in their specific areas of work, while senior managers, CAOs and elected officials can better understand the principles and governance structures that support better infrastructure planning and maintenance.

More about InfraGuide

Developed between 2001 - 2006, InfraGuide is the collaborative effort of a network of 200 volunteers from across the country, including municipal staff, researchers and other experts. While infrastructure management practices and technology have continuously evolved since these documents were developed, many of these best practices continue to be relevant today. FCM makes these resources available so the sector can continue to build on this work.
