Purpose of Project

AMO has been driving municipal sector progress in asset management through its several capacity building projects, policy directives, and administration of the federal Gas Tax.

The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) has engaged AMO as a “partner organization” for the Municipal Asset Management Program to provide technical assistance to municipalities for improving their asset management systems that include developing policies, strategies and plans.

It’s a pilot project. We are adopting a cohort approach, wherein a group of municipalities with similar challenges will learn and apply asset management concepts to their portfolio of assets.

Having an effective asset management system will strengthen the credibility of existing municipal asset management plans and assist Council in making informed infrastructure investment decisions.
