Key Highlights

The IIC is currently tracking 332 large-scale infrastructure construction projects in Canada, at all stages of development from announcement to execution. These projects have a total investment value of US$273 billion.

The total value of the infrastructure construction market reached US$50.5 billion in 2016, according to the Infrastructure Intelligence Center (IIC), down from US$56.2 billion in 2011. Behind the Investing in Canada Plan, output is projected to grow substantially to US$64.0 billion by 2021 (in nominal value terms), corresponding to a 5.3% annual average growth rate.

Goals of the Investing in Canada Plan as set forth in Budget 2016 included that establishment of the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund (CWWF) and the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF). The CWWF provides funding of US$1.5 billion for improving water and wastewater infrastructure, with the PTIF providing US$2.6 billion in funding to improve public transit
