Asset Management Plan & Policy

​Asset management planning “is the process of making the best possible decisions regarding the building, operating, maintaining, renewing, replacing and disposing of infrastructure assets. The objective is to maximize benefits, manage risk, and provide satisfactory levels of service to the public in a sustainable manner”. 

Improved municipal asset management planning is a vital step in Ontario’s Municipal Infrastructure Strategy. Municipalities have been required to demonstrate a progressively greater commitment to asset management in order to request infrastructure funding and guide them in making appropriate infrastructure investment decisions now and into the future.

Diversity and Inclusiveness Action Plan

The BWG Leisure Centre Equity & Inclusiveness Review report was received by Council on May 4, 2021.​​​The death of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, ignited worldwide protests against the unjust treatment of Black men, women and children. The protests – including peaceful gatherings held in Bradford West Gwillimbury this past June, have spurred a global “call to action” to close the racial divide that has subjected the Black community to centuries of oppression and inequality.

In the summer of 2020, Council began working with members of local Black and People of Colour communities to share their views and experiences. This group has evolved into the Mayor’s Anti-Racism Advisory Panel, which advises the Mayor on the development, implementation and monitoring of Town policies, programs and initiatives that support anti-racism efforts in the municipality and beyond.

On September 1, 2020, Council of the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury passed an anti-racism resolution (see below) through which Council committed to take a leadership role in the effort to end discrimination and racism.

The BWG Diversity and Inclusiveness Action Plan​ is the first step towards delivering upon that commitment. It sets out a number of actions that will drive us towards a better future for the Black and racialized members of our town. In time, the scope of the plan will be expanded to address the plight of all marginalized communities such that the Town’s diversity will truly be embraced and all will have an equal opportunity to fulfill their dreams.​​
