Canada’s Infrastructure Outlook


Glenn Campbell

Executive Director

Canada Infrastructure Bank Transition Office

Infrastructure Canada



The federal government has made infrastructure investments a key pillar of their economic plan with over $125 billion in new spending announced since Budget 2016. An important component of the government’s infrastructure plan is the creation of a Canadian Infrastructure Bank, an arm’s-length organization that will work with provincial, territorial, municipal, Indigenous and private sector partners to transform the way infrastructure is planned, funded and delivered in Canada. The Canada Infrastructure Bank will be responsible for investing at least $35 billion over 11 years, using loans, loan guarantees and equity investments. Join the Ottawa Economics Association for a discussion featuring Glenn Campbell on Canada’s infrastructure needs, the government’s infrastructure investment plan and the role of the Canada Infrastructure Bank.
