Take your natural asset management (NAM) knowledge to the next level; fall registration is now open for NAI’s three-part virtual workshop series!

This series is designed for local governments that have already made some progress on natural asset management and understand the basic concepts of asset management and natural asset management. Up to three participants from a local government may register to attend each workshop.

Participants can choose to attend any (or all) of the following virtual workshops:

  2. Describe examples of good practices local governments are undertaking to implement natural asset management in their communities.
  3. Describe some natural asset management activities already occurring in their local government.
  4. Identify potential natural asset management activities their local government may wish to explore following the workshop.

  2. Identify how their local government is already addressing climate risks to natural assets and related services.
  3. Identify opportunities to improve the climate resilience of natural infrastructure during the assessment, planning, and implementation stages of asset management, with examples of what some local governments are already doing.
  4. Identify natural asset management actions that may be required to address climate change-related hazards to municipal infrastructure assets.


Full series: $299 + applicable taxes.
Two workshops: $250 + applicable taxes.
One workshop: $150 + applicable taxes.

*includes up to 3 participants per local government

Please note: NAI is required to prioritize local government participants for this workshop series. Consultants may register if they are participating with a local government they are working with. Other eligible participants include individuals employed by a not-for-profit corporation that has an infrastructure-related shared services agreement with a municipality (e.g., utilities, transit authorities, conservation authorities, etc.) and individuals employed by an Indigenous community that has a shared services agreement with a neighbouring municipality, or elected officials from that Indigenous community.

This initiative is offered through the Municipal Asset Management Program, which is delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and funded by the Government of Canada.
