The industry is made up of nation-builders, creating and maintaining the essential infrastructure Canadians rely on every day – from the schools we send our kids to; the hospitals that care for us; the roads, bridges and trade corridors that connect our communities not only to each other but also the global marketplace.
This is a historic moment for Canada to build a brighter and better future – one that supports sustainable growth and benefits all Canadians. Canada is poised to rebound following the COVID-19 pandemic, but action must be taken to empower the construction industry to lead the recovery today and generate benefits for all for decades to come.
We can Build a Better Canada that will endure well into the future and create opportunities for all.
We are calling on a newly elected government to Invest in Canada. Invest in Canadians. Invest in Infrastructure.
Invest in Canada
Increase infrastructure investment
A gap exists in the level of investment allocated compared to what is needed to fix ageing infrastructure as well as position Canada for the future.
Setting national goals around building sustainability into our infrastructure and supporting the Western Canada Gateway Trade Initiative are just two significant opportunities for Canada. The economy needs reliable infrastructure to connect supply chains and efficiently move goods and services across borders.
The funds must be predictable, flow quickly and be aligned with provincial, municipal, and Indigenous needs.
To achieve this, the federal government must create an independent advisory body that can align governments at the provincial and municipal level to address infrastructure deficits across Canada. The stability of having multi-year project pipelines, based on evidence and independent expert advice, would also enable the development of the necessary skilled workforce and encourage private sector investment.
