Description

The IICP is the Government of Canada's national strategy to address Canada's aging infrastructure and rebuild the nation for the 21st Century, with investments of more than $180 billion over 12 years. Through the IICP, the Government of Canada has made historic new investments in infrastructure providing communities across the country with the tools they need to prosper and innovate.

These investments are creating long-term economic growth, building inclusive, sustainable communities and supporting a low carbon, green economy. The seven expected outcomes of the IICP are:

  • Rate of economic growth is increased in an inclusive and sustainable way
  • Environmental quality is improved, GHG emissions are reduced and resilience of communities is increased
  • Improved urban mobility in Canadian communities
  • Housing is affordable and in good condition and homelessness is reduced year over year
  • Early learning and childcare is of high quality, affordable, flexible and inclusive
  • Canadian communities are more inclusive and accessible
  • Infrastructure is managed in a more sustainable way

The initial phase of the Plan, announced in Budget 2016, focused on laying a foundation in the short term by accelerating existing federal infrastructure investments and providing $14.4 billion in additional funding for the rehabilitation, repair, and modernization of existing infrastructure.

Budget 2017 built on this foundation with $81.2 billion in new funding, to be delivered over 11 years, starting in 2017-18.

The Government of Canada is working closely with partners and stakeholders to deliver and report this ambitious plan that is making a real difference to Canadians and their communities.

Governance structure

Governance committees are supported by INFC, as the lead department for the initiative.

The Deputy Ministers’ Coordinating Committee (DMCC), is chaired by the Deputy Minister of Infrastructure Canada. The aim of the DMCC is to ensure interdepartmental coordination and oversight at the most senior officials level for the IICP, and to support the Minister of Infrastructure and Communities to report to Cabinet and the Prime Minister.  Assistant Deputy Ministers and Directors General responsible from departments delivering programs under the plan also engage as needed to support the implementation and the Plan.

Planning highlights

Going into 2020-21, all IICP programs funded via Budget 2016 and 2017 have launched and regular updates are collected by Infrastructure Canada and communicated to Canadians.

Canadians can view projects approved in their community on the Investing in Canada Project map and track program funding in an online table published on Infrastructure Canada’s website. The second Progress Report for the IICP will also be published Spring/Summer 2020.
