Five Municipalities receive support for stronger asset management practices
February 11, 2022

North Bay, Ontario, February 9th, 2022 — From roads and buildings, to waste water systems – strong asset management is key to building strong communities. Municipalities of all sizes need the tools and support to make evidence-based decisions that can help them plan a healthier, safer and more prosperous future for everyone.


The Government of Canada is investing $240,021 in five municipalities in Nipissing-Timiskaming through the Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP), which is delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities on behalf of the federal government.


The Municipalities of Callander, Calvin, East Ferris, Powassan and the Town of Latchford are all receiving funding for projects that will help with their Asset Management Programs.


The MAMP aims to strengthen infrastructure investment decisions based on reliable data and sound asset management practices through asset management training, funding, and information sharing. These projects will help make data-driven decisions about key infrastructure and ensure long-term infrastructure performance.




“Investing in infrastructure planning here in Nipissing-Timiskaming is an important step to building strong communities. These past months have reinforced the importance of public infrastructure that support sustainable and healthy communities where all residents can thrive. The Municipal Asset Management Program provides tools and training to help local governments make sound, data-driven decisions about their investments, ultimately leading to better results for all residents.”

The Honourable Anthony Rota, Member of Parliament for Nipissing-Timiskaming


“Across the country, communities of all sizes are gearing up for life post-pandemic. They’re working to enhance their infrastructure and natural assets so they can continue to have sustainable and reliable services to improve residents’ quality of life. Ensuring local governments have the right tools to make sound asset management decisions is one way we can help drive Canada’s economic recovery.”

Joanne Vanderheyden, President, Federation of Canadian Municipalities
