2016 Canadian Infrastructure Report Card: Informing the Future

A report by the Canadian Construction Association (CCA), the Canadian Public Works Association (CPWA), the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering

(CSCE) and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) found that one-third of Canada's municipal infrastructure is in fair, poor or very poor condition. Based on a survey of municipalities, which own 60% of Canada's core infrastructure, it found that nearly 35% of assets are in need of attention. Roads, municipal buildings, sport and recreation facilities and public transit are the asset classes most in need of attention. Without an increase in current reinvestment rates, the condition of Canada’s core municipal infrastructure will gradually decline, costing more money and risking service disruption. 

Mark Romoff, President and CEO of CCPPP, provided feedback on the report along with 15 other national organizations.

A report by the Lawrence National Centre for Policy and Management compared the P3 approach to traditional procurement and found the P3 approach to be "generally superior" because it "brings to bear specialized expertise, due diligence and accountability mechanisms that are not possible to replicate in the political environment in which public sector managers work.

The report recognizes that not all projects are best delivered by the P3 approach and lays out conditions to help choose the best procurement method.
