Thunder Bay is developing a new Asset Management Plan.

The Asset Management Plan: Phase One was approved by City Council in December 2021. Phase One of the Asset Management Plan focuses on core assets. A core asset means any municipal infrastructure asset that falls within the following four categories (click each one for more info):

 Transportation Services
 Paved or gravel roads, vehicle, pedestrian, or multi-use bridges, and cross culverts larger than 3 meters in diameter, or multiple smaller diameter cross culverts;
 Stormwater Services
 Assets that relate to the collection, transmission, treatment, retention, infiltration, control, or discharge of stormwater;
 Wastewater Services
 Assets that relate to the collection, transmission, treatment, or disposal of wastewater including any wastewater assets that manage stormwater;
 Water Services
 Assets that relate to the production, treatment, storage, supply, or distribution of water.

The Future-Ready Roadmap

Updated revisions of the Plan will be developed in three phases, each with key strategic actions to comply with the Ontario Regulation 588/17: Asset Management Planning for Municipal Infrastructure under the Infrastructure for Jobs and Prosperities Act, 2015. The Future-Ready Roadmap was developed, to map out the stops needed to collect, compile, and complete key strategic actions.
