Infrastructure Canada

Today, Patrick Weiler, Member of Parliament for West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country, and Taneen Rudyk, President of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM), announced an investment of $139,808 in three British Columbia communities to support data-driven decision-making about key infrastructure and ensure long-term infrastructure performance.

  • The Town of Gibsons is receiving $39,808 to improve wastewater services data and asset management practices to ensure sustainable service delivery and support decision-making. The project includes data collection, consolidation, formatting, review, and analysis to be developed into an asset management plan.
  • The District of Sooke is receiving $50,000 to complete its asset inventory and determine targeted annual funding levels for assets. The project will identify exposure and sensitivity to climate change and prioritize the vulnerabilities facing the District’s asset systems.
  • The District of Logan Lake is receiving $50,000 to begin focusing on asset groups and advancing their individual asset management plans to fully detailed long-term planning and management systems.

The funding comes from the Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP).

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.
