South Huron receives federal funding for strategic asset management program


$50,000 grant received through Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ Municipal Asset Management Program

Municipalities across the country are implementing some of Canada's most advanced green solutions, reducing Canada's greenhouse gas emissions and supporting local priorities such as improving public transit, saving energy and improving waste management.

The Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, and Vicki-May Hamm, President of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) have announced over $4.5 million in funding for 109 new initiatives in communities across Canada through three programs: the Green Municipal Fund (GMF), the Municipalities for Climate Innovation Program (MCIP), and the Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP).

Among the successful applicants, South Huron has received support for its asset management strategy that will improve the management of the municipality’s core infrastructure, which includes roads and bridges. The strategy will establish time frames for the repair or replacement of all infrastructure in the municipality’s portfolio to ensure that these assets are maintained and provide maximum value to our communities.

“South Huron has certainly been forward thinking in establishing a strategy for the next 20 years,” said Mayor Maureen Cole. “I appreciate the hard work of council, staff and FCM in securing the grant of $50,000 to assist in evidence-based decision making."

The Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP) is designed to help Canadian municipalities strengthen infrastructure investment decisions based on sound asset management practices. The program provides asset management training, funding and information sharing to enable municipalities to access the data needed to plan effectively. MAMP is a five-year, $50-million program, delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and funded by the Government of Canada.
