Climate Change & Asset Management

Ontario Regulation 588/17 requires municipalities to address, through its asset management planning, the vulnerabilities to infrastructure that may be caused by climate change as well as any adaptation opportunities or mitigation approaches to be undertaken. The regulation asks municipalities to consider the impact of climate change on municipalities' operations, levels of service, and lifecycle management. 

Asset Management Ontario (AMONTario) is developing and promoting resources in support of this aim. Please refer to the following presentations from recent events as helpful resources.
