The Asbestos Management Program (AMP) provides information and procedures for Asbestos Management in buildings and schools owned by the Keewatin Patricia District School Board (KPDSB). It applies to all categories of property with the exception of vacant lands. The AMP applies to all KPDSB staff, as well as all service providers and contractors performing work in KPDSB facilities.
