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.

Dear Asset Management Professional,

As part of the Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP) delivered by the Federation of Canadian
Municipalities and funded by the Government of Canada, the Canadian Network of Asset Managers
(CNAM) is conducting a national survey on the current needs and demand for workforce capacity and
capability development of asset management in Canada.

We need your help!

When you complete this survey, you will have helped us to better understand; a) gaps in individual and
organizational competency; b) areas where organizations need help to implement and sustain their
asset management programs; and, c) what resources individuals and organizations require to better
develop their asset management capacity and capabilities.

This survey is critical to understanding Canada’s asset management landscape.

The survey will take about 20-30 minutes to complete. We appreciate this is a significant request of your
time, but collectively the hundreds of responses we expect will enable us to develop a statistically valid
and comprehensive picture of the current needs and demands for asset management capacity and
capability development in the country. We will use the aggregated data (your responses are anonymous
and privacy is ensured) to help the industry better structure and provide support to organizations like

yours in the future.

Receive the summary survey results and be entered into a prize draw!

Upon completing the survey, you will be provided a link to a separate, optional form to provide your
contact information should you wish to receive a summary report of the survey results. You will also be
entered into a draw for one of several $50 Amazon gift cards. Your contact information will only be used
to send you the results and enter you into the draw and will not be tied to any of the responses you
provided in the survey.
