Nov. 24, 2017 –  The Government of Canada is moving forward with its historic plan to invest in infrastructure, including leveraging private sector investment and know-how in order to build more infrastructure in communities across Canada.

PPP Canada was created 8 years ago to promote the adoption of the Public-Private Partnerships (P3) concept across Canada. Since its creation, PPP Canada has played a key role in establishing P3s as an effective way to ensure performance of infrastructure from design and planning, to long-term maintenance. P3s have since become widely used by different jurisdictions in Canada.

Given that PPP Canada has fulfilled its mandate and Canada has developed a strong P3 market, the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, today announced the Government of Canada’s intention to dissolve PPP Canada.
