Building the Canada We Want in 2050

The Government of Canada has launched an Engagement Paper on Canada's first National Infrastructure Assessment: "Building the Canada We Want in 2050". It sets out the purpose and benefits of undertaking a National Infrastructure Assessment and seeks input from the public, Indigenous peoples, provinces, territories, municipalities, and stakeholders on three main priorities of the assessment:

  • Assessing Canada's infrastructure needs and establishing a long-term vision;
  • Improving coordination among infrastructure owners and funders; and
  • Determining the best ways to fund and finance infrastructure.

The National Infrastructure Assessment, once in place, will help identify Canada's evolving needs and priorities in the built environment and undertake evidence-based long-term planning toward a net-zero emissions future. By continuing to link our investments with outcomes, we can ensure a strong and equitable recovery that creates good jobs, grows the economy and builds cleaner, more inclusive communities for all Canadians.
