Opportunity for a watershed project in Ontario’s Greenbelt

Calling local governments in Ontario’s Greenbelt!

Municipalities across Canada are starting to employ municipal natural asset management as a practical strategy to combat the challenges of aging infrastructure, rising capital and operating costs and strained service deliver.

In collaboration with the Municipal Natural Assets Initiative (MNAI), they are acting on the growing evidence that natural assets provide, or could be restored to provide, services just like engineered assets, and often at lower costs.  MNAI offers a methodology and support for local governments to integrate natural assets into core asset management and financial processes using the same systems as for engineered assets.

MNAI is now offering a watershed-level program in Ontario’s Greenbelt, in collaboration with the Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation.  The project will be focussed on the needs and capacities of smaller / rural local governments.  The Request for Expressions of Interest is at this link.  It will close as soon as a suitable group of candidates is identified.
