Municipal infrastructure is the backbone of our everyday life. It is how we get from home to the workplace, where we go for recreation, how we dispose of waste, how we care for our books and heritage treasures, how we position police and fire rescue around the city to protect us day and night. Infrastructure is critical to the competitiveness of our economy, the quality of life citizens enjoy, and the delivery of public services.
The Office of Infrastructure and Funding Strategy plays a lead role in implementing Edmonton City Council’s Infrastructure Strategy. A key area of its work is the development and usage of a variety of innovative infrastructure asset management tools.
The goal is to help Council and Administration make more informed decisions and use resources more effectively to ensure that the City’s municipal infrastructure is in a good state of repair and able to meet the needs of a growing population.
