The City of Brampton is responding to Canada’s Innovation Agenda by working collectively and collaboratively with our peers across all public sectors, and in partnership with local and global business leaders, to demonstrate global leadership in asset management.
In June 2017, the City of Brampton, in partnership with the Asset Management Academy
, launched the first-ever Asset Management Training and Innovation Centre in Canada endorsed by the Institute of Asset Management (IAM)
; the international professional body for asset management. The IAM Qualifications: Certificate and Diploma focus on international best practices in alignment with the ISO 55000 standard for asset management.
Effective January 1, 2018, the Ontario Regulation 588/2017: Asset Management Planning for Municipal Infrastructure
requires that every municipality develops a strategic asset management policy by July 1, 2019, and a phased asset management plan by July 1, 2024. The training and networking opportunities offered in Brampton will help municipalities develop staff capacity to successfully meet the regulation requirements.
