CANADA
$11.8 Billion To Be Spent On Infrastructure

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced that US$11.8 billion is to be invested in Canada’s public infrastructure over the next eight years, in order to “rebuild a more sustainable and resilient economy”.

The investment will increase the country’s use of cleaner electric power, zero-emission vehicles and related infrastructure, in order to reduce pollution and help fight climate change.

It includes the provision of a dedicated planning fund to speed up major projects and support the expansion of the country’s urban transport systems. 

The Canadian Government said this would help people in remote and rural locations access essential services and that it would work with Indigenous communities to “create transit solutions that meet their needs”.

This would be the largest public infrastructure investment in Canadian history.
