Town of Canmore

Council Clips – February 6, 2018

Information Technology Strategic Plan

The Town of Canmore relies on its Information Technology (IT) department for network and systems service, as well as support in non-technical work.  We recognize the need to develop a vision and roadmap for the effective use of technology and services to support the work of the Town. Tantus Solutions was contracted through an RFP process by the Town in 2017 to develop an Information Technology Strategic Plan and presented their findings to Council, which were accepted for planning purposes.

Servicing the Bow River Campground

The Town of Canmore has entered into an agreement with Alberta Environment to allow the Bow River Campground to be serviced with water and wastewater by connecting to the Town’s water distribution system and sanitary sewer collection system. This would enhance the Bow River Campground with water and electrical services provided directly to some sites and a washroom and shower building to serve the entire campground. 

Municipal Benchmarking

The Town of Canmore has been an active participant in the Municipal Benchmarking Initiative with four other communities. Council has received benchmarking reports in the past for services such as: drinking water supply, police, and fire services. The group is wishing to expand the membership of participating municipalities and additional funds are required to allow this to occur. Council authorized the Town of Canmore to participate in an application being led by the Town of Banff to seek funding through the Alberta Community Partnership gran.
