PEMAC Asset Management Association of Canada and Northern Lakes College congratulate municipal practitioners who graduated from the Asset Management Professional (AMP) program.

In 2020, PEMAC was selected for the second time, by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) to provide asset management training to municipal practitioners. The Municipal Asset Management Program is an eight-year, $110 million initiative, which is delivered by FCM and funded by the Government of Canada.

The participating cohorts of 126 municipal practitioners from over 50 municipalities across 10 provinces, have started their learning journey through the AMP program beginning in fall 2020 through spring 2022. In April, over 60 of these practitioners from 34 municipalities successfully completed the full program and are now eligible for the Certified Asset Management Professional (CAMP) designation.

“PEMAC was pleased to welcome another group of cross-functional teams from municipalities across Canada who applied for the program with the stated goal to work together to strengthen their understanding of Asset Management and to meaningfully improve the Asset Management practices of their municipality,” said Cindy Snedden, Executive Director, PEMAC. “We are thrilled to see that the knowledge gained throughout the program is being applied, as these professionals work to implement process improvements and more strategic decision-making tools. They join a growing list of recognized Certified Asset Management Professionals, and they should be very proud of their accomplishments.”


The AMP program, comprised of six courses, is delivered through Northern Lakes College. It focuses on strategic asset management thinking while building organizational capacity in asset management. Designed for mid-career professionals and senior management from a variety of roles including IT, business management and finance, participants build their knowledge and skills while familiarizing themselves with strategic decision-making tools at each stage of the asset lifecycle.
