(June 15) Webinar: Managing Assets for Sustainable Communities

The Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP) and Engineers Canada are hosting the Managing Assets for Sustainable Communities webinar June 15th 9:00am -10:30am PDT.  

Communities are approaching, at an increasing pace, the end-of-life of many critical assets that were built over the past 60 years. With more money flowing to maintaining and replacing aging assets, it no doubt will mean less money for other social and environmental priorities. For this reason, one might argue that addressing the asset liabilities in our communities, might just be one of the largest threats (or opportunities) to advancing our communities’ sustainability objectives. This initiative is funded through Infrastructure Canada and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP) and aims to “build awareness and provide basic technical assistance” on municipal asset management. Municipal staff, elected officials, engineers and planners are invited to take part in this webinar which focuses on engaging smaller, rural, and remote communities.

Speaker: Dr. Guy Félio PhD., P.Eng., FCSCE, IRP (Climate) Guy Félio is a civil engineer with a Ph.D. from Texas A&M University. He has more than 30 years of experience in the field as a university professor, researcher, consultant and policy advisor. He provides expertise and support in the areas of asset management and adaptation of the built environment to climate change.
