Canada invests over C$90 billion per year in capital spending on infrastructure with many large infrastructure projects planned. Infrastructure investments will continue to play a key role in Canada’s economic recovery post-COVID. Federal, provincial and municipal governments are working together to accelerate project funding and prioritize shovel-ready projects. For the long-term, governments are looking at investments in areas like public transit, trade infrastructure, green infrastructure and broadband that will provide a long-lasting legacy. Different levels of government are also looking at streamlining their processes, and using new tools and approaches to drive greater value from infrastructure investments. This includes a more active role for the Canada Infrastructure Bank which seeks to draw in private financing for infrastructure projects.
