Governments across Canada have identified the expansion and renewal of major transportation infrastructure as one of their greatest challenges and foremost priorities. In Ontario, the provincial government has committed to an historic investment in public transit and transportation, to the extent that Infrastructure Ontario currently has over $15 billion worth of transit and transportation projects under construction. Ehren Cory will describe the evolution of Ontario’s Alternative Financing and Procurement program, explaining how public-private partnerships protect taxpayers from significant risks, harness innovation, and enable the delivery of mega-projects in an efficient and cost effective manner, and outlining what lies ahead for Ontario’s infrastructure renewal program.
