Building Asset Management Practices in Nova Scotia

Participants will gain an understanding of the transformational changes some Nova Scotia municipalities are making to support improved infrastructure decisions and more efficient service delivery.  These municipalities, considered to be early adopters of asset management in the Province, will share their experience, results and lessons learned through their participation in an asset management peer learning cohort program implemented by the AIM Network.*  

The agenda for the day will include presentations, panel discussions and storytelling along with round table discussions that centre on the key elements required to build an effective asset management program: governance, developing levels of service, risk assessment (including climate risk), prioritization of infrastructure projects and community engagement. 

You will also have a chance to hear an update from the Province of NS and NSFM.

The program has been delivered through the Municipal Asset Management Program,

which is delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and funded by

the Government of Canada
