Plan your community's infrastructure for a sustainable future.

We are Saskatchewan's first working group dedicated to assisting municipal stakeholders in improving their knowledge and abilities in municipal infrastructure asset management.

OUR APPROACH TO ASSET MANAGEMENT:

There is a lot of information out there about asset management, we’re here to help you take that information and translate it into action in your organization.

 

Our goal is to share with you everything that you need to know, not everything there is to know. We strive to empower you to achieve 80% of the results with 20% of the effort.

 

There’s no way around the fact that this journey requires effort and commitment, but we’re confident that you can do the lion’s share of it with your own team and that it doesn’t need to be complicated.

Statistics on Saskatchewan Municipal Organizations: 

  • 775 municipal organizations in SK

  • 15% of the total municipalities in Canada

  • 80% have a population of less than 1,000 people

  • 65% of them have a population of less than 500 people

Saskatchewan is unique; we’re made up primarily of

small municipalities. 

 

While this doesn’t decrease the urgency or importance of asset management, it does reduce the complexity.  We’ve designed a training continuum to suit the Saskatchewan requirement.

OUR RELATIONSHIP TO YOU:

We are a non-profit organization. Our relationship with you is transformational, not transactional.

 

We’re here to help. We want to empower your independence and your organizational ability to do as much of the work as possible. We want to enable you to do this yourselves, and if external help is needed you go there next, not first.

 

There is wisdom in the quote “Give a person a fish, and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to fish, and you feed them for a lifetime.” We think this applies to asset management as well.

This initiative is offered through the Municipal Asset Management Program, which is delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and funded by the Government of Canada.
