The Town of Stratford (population ~9,700) is located in Queens County, Prince Edward Island. It is southeast of the City of Charlottetown and is the third-largest municipality in the province.
The Town of Stratford’s interest in natural asset management is two-fold. First, it wants to better understand the natural assets upon which it relies for services. This includes gaining knowledge on their condition, the threats they face, and the services they provide. This understanding will help better protect and enhance these natural assets.
Second, the Town of Stratford aims to incorporate natural asset management into its existing asset management plans. This inventory will serve as a starting point to identify resources that may be required for natural asset management4
