103 initiatives approved under two new funding programs

The federal government and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities recently announced funding for 103 initiatives in communities across Canada through two new funding programs: the Municipalities for Climate Innovation Program (MCIP) and the Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP).

MCIP is a new five-year, $75-million program designed to encourage Canadian municipalities to better prepare for and adapt to the new realities of climate change as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The October 17, 2017 announcement includes just over $3.7 million in MCIP grants towards 28 projects in municipalities across Canada. 

MAMP is a five-year, $50-million program designed to help Canadian municipalities strengthen infrastructure investment decisions based on sound asset management practices. The announcement includes over $3.1 million in MAMP grants towards 75 projects in municipalities across Canada.

"Communities large and small are looking for ways to maximize their infrastructure dollars, plan for, and adapt to the impacts of climate change, and undertake programs that benefit the environment," said FCM President Jenny Gerbasi. "Local solutions are helping tackle national challenges — and are building a more livable, competitive Canada. We are proud of the great work communities are undertaking with the help of these federally funded programs."

For example, through MCIP, communities such as Surrey, British Columbia are studying how to adapt to coastal flooding and increase community resiliency, and Edmonton, Alberta is working on a Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience Strategy. These types of projects are crucial as communities deal with climate change and its environmental impacts.

MAMP is helping Canadian municipalities make informed decisions on infrastructure investment based on sound asset management practices. For example, in St Clair, Ontario that means integrating new software that will make existing data more useful during decision making processes. The Town of Paradise, Newfoundland is working towards a full-fledged asset management plan to ensure they are more strategically funding the town's basic infrastructure needs.

"These new programs will help municipalities to plan, build and maintain their infrastructure more strategically, and will enable them to invest in infrastructure projects reducing greenhouse gas emissions and better preparing for the impacts of climate change," said Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities. "Innovative green infrastructure projects contribute to a clean growth economy and strengthen the middle class by ensuring communities are healthy and sustainable places to live."

MCIP and MAMP are delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and funded by the Government of Canada.
