CNAM is a national hub through which industry professionals exchange information on the latest developments in infrastructure asset management in Canada. Information sharing is critical to optimizing the benefits of asset management when people and financial resources are limited.
Through its ongoing municipal infrastructure asset management leadership role, CNAM is shaping the industry. The Association is consulted to provide advice on programs, policies and other initiatives being developed and undertaken in the asset management field. Examples of this leadership role include CNAM’s integral contribution to two collaborative Workshops in Edmonton and Quebec City with ten regional Communities of Practice, and active engagement with the FCM-sponsored Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP) through representation on the Program Steering Committee and the Technical Working Group.
CNAM is continually working to build a cohesive and collaborative network of infrastructure asset management organizations across Canada and the globe. This collaborative initiative is accomplished through formal Partnership Agreements and through ongoing, strong working relationships with numerous organizations across Canada and internationally as well.
