AbstractMunicipal Infrastructure Investment Planning (MIIP) is a three-year project investigating decision support tools for strategic asset management (http://www.nrc-cnrc.gc.ca/eng/projects/irc/municipal-infrastructure.html). A defined deliverable for the project is a survey and report on existing levels of maintenance within the participating organizations and within Canadian municipalities. More specifically, the survey should validate the 2% to 4% ?Level of Investment? recommended2 by some government agencies (NRC US, 1994, 1996). This report addresses these project needs by investigating: (1) the actual and sustainable ?Level of Investment? expenditures for maintenance of municipal infrastructure; (2) the extent of asset management techniques in practice today, and (3) the state of Canada's municipal infrastructure assets. This report presents the results of a survey sent to 545 municipalities across Canada and presents and discusses the responses from 67 Canadian municipal infrastructure asset managers. Included in the number were responses from the federal departments, municipalities and regional municipalities participating in the MIIP project.
