“We are very excited to have someone of John Manley’s stature accept this position with our organization,” said CCPPP Chair Dale Richmond. “Given his valued contributions to Canadian public policy in both the public and the private sectors, I cannot think of anyone better suited to promote the importance of public-private partnerships (P3s) in addressing Canada’s infrastructure needs.”

“The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships has a 22-year record of success as a thought leader in the procurement of public infrastructure and services,” Mr. Manley said. “P3s combine best practices from the public and private sectors to deliver – on time and on budget – innovative, high-quality, long-lasting infrastructure.”

The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships read with interest the report from the Ontario Auditor General on Alternative Financing and Procurement (also known as public-private partnerships or P3s) and is concerned that the report paints an inaccurate representation of the P3 model.

Moving past the headlines, the report confirmed many of the benefits of the model, including the savings as a result of avoided risk, the impeccable record of projects completed on-time and on-budget and where cost overruns have occurred, in the vast majority of cases the private sector was on the hook for the full amount. The Council agrees with the Auditor General’s observation that Infrastructure Ontario has a “strong record of delivering projects such as hospitals, courthouses, and detention centres on time and on budget.”
