Associated Engineering is honoured to be recognized as an engineering partner on the Assembly of First Nations “Closing the Infrastructure Gap by 2030” Report

Associated Engineering partnered with the Assembly of First Nations, Indigenous Services Canada, and other organizations, to support a funding request made to the federal government to close the infrastructure gap for First Nations across Canada. This initiative builds on the National First Nations Asset Needs Study delivered through 2021 and quantifies the investment required for the long-term sustainability and resilience of First Nations’ infrastructure and services, services that continue to experience inequity and social challenges.

The work involved compiling and analyzing infrastructure investment needs, including transportation, water, wastewater, stormwater, recreation, housing, social services, and education. Our team’s innovative approach also documented through objective analysis, the need for climate adaptation, actions required to achieve net zero for First Nations, improvements in accessibility, eliminating drinking water advisories, and the costs of improving all-season access roads to First Nations currently serviced by seasonal ice roads.

This ground-breaking study is a critical step towards achieving reconciliation with First Nations.
