Canada and FCM support strengthened asset management in Newfoundland and Labrador communities 24 November

Infrastructure Canada

Today, the Honourable Gudie Hutchings, Minister of Rural Economic Development, and Taneen Rudyk, President of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM), announced an investment of $388,775 in nine Newfoundland and Labrador communities to support data-driven decision‑making about key infrastructure and ensure long-term infrastructure performance.

  • The Town of Glenwood is receiving $47,880 to compile a complete inventory of its major assets including linear assets, buildings and structures and fleet. The information will be used to prepare state of infrastructure reports.
  • The Town of Gander is receiving $50,000 to quickly identify the status of existing assets, determine areas for improvement, identify roles/responsibilities, develop mandates and asset management plan templates. The information will be used to educate staff and council on the process of incorporating an asset management program.
  • The Town of Bay Bulls is receiving $50,000 to develop an eco-asset management framework. This project will develop a watershed model, conduct a climate change vulnerability assessment, establish a level of service review, and put together an asset management assessment report.

By investing in infrastructure, the Government of Canada is growing our country’s economy, increasing the resiliency of our communities, and improving the lives of Canadians.
