Ottawa, October 16, 2020— As we continue to adapt to the new physical, social and economic realities presented by COVID-19, all orders of government are working together to ensure the safety and well-being Canadians. This includes providing local communities with tools and support for evidence-based decision-making that will help them plan a healthier, safer and more prosperous future for everyone.
That’s why the Government of Canada is investing over $125,000 in three Newfoundland and Labrador communities through the Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP), delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities on behalf of the federal government.
The program aims to strengthen infrastructure investment decisions based on reliable data and sound asset management practices through asset management training, funding and information sharing.
The towns of Harbour Breton, Hermitage-Sandyville and St. Albans will compile a complete inventory of their major assets including water distribution, roads, sewer, municipally owned buildings and structures, trails, parks and fleet. As part of the initiative, municipal council and staff will participate in asset management training sessions.
