Welcome to the Survey!

The Canadian Network of Asset Managers (CNAM) is putting out this survey to help the public sector Asset Management (AM) industry identify and examine the current needs and demand for workforce AM capacity and capability development in Canada. By participating in this survey, you will allow us to better understand:

·         What gaps in individual and organizational competency (knowledge, skills, and behaviours) are prevalent in Canadian public sector AM.

·         What areas are organizations struggling with as they implement and sustain their AM programs.

·         What individuals and organizations are currently doing to develop their AM capacity and capabilities, and where they seek to improve.

·         What resources individuals and organizations require to better develop their AM capacity and capabilities.

By collecting information from a range of survey respondents from a diverse group of communities from across the country the survey will also allow us to assess these issues by organization type, size, and region.
A French language version of this survey will be available in the coming weeks. Please check back at https://cnam.ca/resources/am-capacity-needs-survey/ for the latest on the survey and CNAM’s AM Competency Framework.

Une version française de cette enquête sera disponible dans les prochaines semaines. Veuillez consulter le https://cnam.ca/resources/am-capacity-needs-survey/ pour les dernières informations sur le sondage et le cadre de compétences en gestion d’actifs du CNAM.

Your Answers

You will be asked questions about your organization and its AM team, organizational readiness, AM capacity needs, and workplace learning preferences. You will also be asked to respond to questions about yourself and your AM responsibilities, competency, and experience. Please answer the questions individually and from your own personal perspective. Please also answer all the questions to the best of your knowledge. A complete set of answers is important to give us the information we need to fully evaluate and understand the responses.

The survey will likely take you 20-30min to complete. We appreciate this is a significant amount of your time. But, collectively your responses will enable us to develop a fuller picture of the current needs and demands for AM capacity and capability development in organizations like yours, and therefore a better understanding of the challenges and barriers these organizations face. We can then all use this information to help the industry better structure and provide support to help overcome these challenges.


The information you provide will be anonymized and will not be used for any other purpose, such as marketing. Any reporting produced from the data will also be aggregated before being shared publicly. We will not report any individual responses.
