Local Government Awareness Week

May 12-18, 2024

Local Government Awareness Week is an ongoing initiative that supports our goal of generating awareness and educating the public about the roles and responsibilities of local government, and encouraging public participation in local government processes. In the middle of Local Government Awareness Week is Asset Management Awareness Day on May 15. Local governments use sound asset management practices to ensure that current community service needs, and how those services are delivered, do not compromise the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

2024 Theme: Infrastructure

Infrastructure is a significant part of local government service delivery but is often underappreciated or overlooked by the public. This year’s theme invites local governments to tell the infrastructure story of their community or region, and the steps that are being taken to ensure sustainable service delivery.
