Municipal Natural Assets Initiative – Pilot Communities

2018 – Municipal Natural Assets Initiative

The term Municipal Natural Assets refers to the stocks of natural resources or ecosystems that contribute to the provision of one or more services required for the health, well-being, and long-term sustainability of a community and its residents. The Municipal Natural Assets Initiative (MNAI) provides scientific, economic and municipal expertise to support and guide local governments in identifying, valuing and accounting for natural assets in their financial planning and asset management programs, and in developing leading-edge, sustainable and climate resilient infrastructure. This webpage showcases case studies of MNAI’s pilot communities, including the Town of Gibsons, City of Nanaimo, District of West Vancouver, Grand Forks, Region of Peel and Town of Oakville.
