Integrating Affordability Into Capital and Financial Planning

May 24, 2021

Integrating affordability has become critical to a municipality’s long-term financial sustainability.  Understanding how to leverage future affordability with processes and decision-making in operations and capital projects is key. Not just to evaluate efficacy of assistance programs, but to make the least amount of impact on rates to the community.

Stantec’s Andrew Burnham, Vice President of Financial Services, and Benjamin Stewart, Management Consultant, discuss how to create a standard decision-making and planning framework that integrates affordability into capital planning, budgeting, and decision-making tools.
