Managing infrastructure is becoming increasingly challenging as demands increase and resources remain limited. Municipalities are constantly under pressure to cut costs and provide more services, a feat that can only be achieved through continuous improvement. For years, water, wastewater, and stormwater utilities throughout Canada have been using benchmarking as a means, among others, to establish service levels, identify performance improvement opportunities, share best practices, and communicate performance and needs to stakeholders using objective and defensible data.
Learn how the methodology developed by these initiatives is currently being adapted to the transportation sector through the creation of Canada’s first NTBI.
