The renewed GTF places greater emphasis on long-term capital planning and asset management. As a result, municipalities are required to participate in the development of asset management plans. The AMF defines an asset management plan as a document that “supports integrated lifecycle approaches to effectively manage infrastructure resources to maximize profits and manage risk.” For a project, there will be no site preparation, distance or vegetation construction, and Canada is not required to pay eligible expenditures established by Canada until Canada is satisfied that the federal requirements under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 (CEAA, 2012), other applicable federal environmental assessment laws that come into force or may come into force for the duration of the agreement, as well as other applicable agreements between Canada and Aboriginal groups are and continue to be respected. Investing in Canada Plan Project Map:www.infrastructure.gc.ca/gmap-gcarte/index-eng.html “Rural communities are an integral part of our country and have been heavily influenced by Covid-19 in many different ways. That`s why investments in local infrastructure, such as the rehabilitation of the Cabot Trail in Victoria County, are particularly important in helping communities recover and become more resilient now and in the future. To address the challenges communities face as a result of the COVID 19 pandemic, Canada`s investment infrastructure program, valued at more than $33 billion, now includes new electricity to provide more infrastructure projects during the pandemic, increasing eligible project types and accelerating project approvals. The expanded programme is taking steps to address the current health crisis and support economic stability through existing means and programmes. HALIFAX, NS, August 5, 2020 /CNW/ – Canadian communities are at the forefront of the COVID-19 pandemic and need immediate assistance if they adapt their public infrastructure priorities to our new reality. As part of the ongoing resolute response to the pandemic, the Government of Canada is supporting the development of a modern, efficient and sustainable public infrastructure that ensures the health and safety of our communities, stabilizes our economy and provides all Canadians with access to basic services.
