2018 AMONtario

Annual Conference

Hosted by the Town of Oakville, the Asset Management Ontario (AMONTario) invited public sector asset management practitioners across Ontario to it’s Annual General Meeting taking place November 20-21st, 2018.

The focus of the 2018 AMONTario Annual Conference and Workshops was to leverage global best practices to meet Ontario’s municipal asset management regulation. These include infrastructure asset management leading practices around topics such as managing risk and levels of service; strengthening and building a cross-departmental asset management culture; utilizing diverse municipal metrics to advance asset management; understanding global perspectives (e.g., ISO 55000) around best practices; and becoming connected with key practitioners and partners in infrastructure asset management.

The target audience was municipal employees working in: public works, treasury/finance, administration, and planning. One of AMONTario’s strengths is its approach to promoting cross-disciplinary collaboration around asset management, and so municipalities were encouraged to bring practitioners from different departments who will be working together to implement asset management plans at their municipalities.

The proceedings from the workshops and presentations include information and practical tools that can contribute to professional development for practitioners.
