This report has been prepared with the support of the Ontario First Nations Technical Services Corporation (OFNTSC) and is part of a Pilot Project to advance the capacity and capabilities of Ontario First Nations in managing assets and services delivered to members. This report is the first Asset Management Plan (AMP) for the Moose Cree First Nation (MCFN) of Moose Factory (ON) and establishes a framework that supports an informed decision-making process that is used to improve the management of the community’s infrastructure.
In this context, the AMP provides a life-cycle investment profile that establishes a cost for managing the infrastructure to sustain delivery of the services that depend on this infrastructure. This cost profile can be used to compare to the current level of funding provided by Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) for this community.
This Pilot Project has developed tools and templates to capture information efficiently and effectively about the assets and services currently provided, as well as to provide a window into the future to better understand the long-term costs of service delivery.
