The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships released two summary reports of public opinion research completed in 2015 by Nanos Research.

Focus group research conducted in seven cities reinforced that Canadians understand and are supportive of P3 projects. Across all sectors and all cities, there was support for P3s and when probed about specific projects in their communities, support was almost universal. Elite level surveys of decision makers at the municipal and aboriginal level also demonstrated support for P3s, though there was some uncertainty about where their constituents stood on the issue.

The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships (CCPPP) is proud to announce the 2015 recipients of the National Awards for Innovation and Excellence in Public-Private Partnerships (P3s), including the 2015 P3 Champion.

"The Council's Awards Program this year is marked by a slate of distinguished award winners delivering unprecedented best-in-class infrastructure in transportation, health care, corrections and schools," said Mark Romoff, President and CEO of CCPPP. "These high-quality projects contribute to Canada's strong track record of success for groundbreaking partnerships between business and government to address emerging and longstanding infrastructure needs in a variety of sectors across the country."

P3s have become such an economic driver for infrastructure delivery that, over the 10-year period between 2003 and 2012, 121 P3 projects in Canada created 290,000 direct full-time equivalent jobs, contributed $25.1 billion to direct GDP and generated $9.9 billion in cost savings and $7.5 billion in tax revenues to federal and provincial governments. In a separate study, the Conference Board of Canada estimates that Canadian P3s deliver an average of 13% in savings when compared with conventional projects.

bruce power case study cover homepageTIVERTON, ON - A report released today concludes that Bruce Power's unique structure has helped Ontario achieve a number of key goals including keeping electricity prices low for families and businesses, helping ensure Ontarians have clean air to breathe while injecting more than $10 billion of private investment into public assets without impacting the province's balance sheet in the process.

"When this structure was unveiled 15 years ago, critics warned safety would suffer, jobs would be cut and environmental issues would be ignored. History has proven those critics wrong," said Duncan Hawthorne, Bruce Power President and CEO. "We have an industry-leading safety record, strong operational performance and have hired more than 3,100 people, while our multi-billion dollar investment to renew Ontario's nuclear fleet has helped the province phase-out coal in the process."

The unique Bruce Power Public-Private Partnership was recognized by The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships (CCPPP) in 2001 as the winner of its Gold Award for Infrastructure in the National Awards for Innovation and Excellence in Public-Private Partnerships.
