WHERE : online
WHEN : monday may 14th, 2 PM to 3:30 PM
Asset management is needed to decide what assets to keep, what to retire, and what is fundamental for the future. The strategic management of assets is especially vital for Canada’s smaller, rural, and remote communities. Long-term planning and a collaborative approach across departments and disciplines help to create asset management plans that are adaptable and resilient. Asset management is integral to professional development, to the sustainability of municipal employers, and to the long-term well-being of the communities that planners serve. It is crucial for CIP to provide a platform for Continuing Professional Learning on the topic. The Managing Assets for Sustainable Communities Training Series helps municipalities develop the skills to take asset management from theory to practice.
This initiative is funded through Infrastructure Canada and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Municipal Asset Management Program(MAMP) and aims to « build awareness and provide basic technical assistance » on municipal asset management. Municipal Staff and elected officials are invited to take part in this webinar which focuses on engaging smaller, rural, and remote communities.
