Towns and cities across Canada face a constant struggle to maintain aging infrastructure, such as stormwater systems, roads, buildings and other municipal assets, while also building new services and systems to meet community needs. Add to that the pressure to adapt to climate change, and the need to manage development in an environmentally responsible manner. It’s clear that municipal councils have a lot on their plate.

Improve municipal planning by developing an approach that considers the long-term needs of your community
Identify choices, communicate benefits and better inform council decisions on what infrastructure projects deliver the most value
Make better use of your capital budget, the Federal Government’s Community-Building Fund and other infrastructure grants
Better navigate staff resourcing and succession planning
