Today, the Honourable Anthony Rota, Speaker of the House of Commons and Member of Parliament for Nipissing-Timiskaming, and Taneen Rudyk, President of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM), announced an investment of $823,716 in eighteen Ontario communities to strengthen data-driven decision-making about key infrastructure and ensure long-term infrastructure performance.
- The Town of Mattawa is receiving $40,000 to assess and document its core assets such as roads, bridges, sewage, water and storm water management. The town will later assess its other assets which include municipal buildings, equipment, parks, solid waste, landfill and snow disposal.
- The Peel Housing Corporation is receiving $50,000 to increase asset management knowledge throughout the corporation and to define critical assets and improve financial performance, social responsibility and organization sustainability.
- The Municipality of Shuniah is receiving $50,000 to develop a risk and lifecycle framework, undergo building condition assessments and asset management training. This will allow the municipality to better understand its assets performance and effectively plan for future maintenance based on data-driven decisions.
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.
