OTTAWA: Gerald Soroka, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, wishes to advise that the Department of Infrastructure and Communities has launched an Engagement Paper on Canada’s first National Infrastructure Assessment. This will set out the purpose and benefits of undertaking a National Infrastructure Assessment and seeks input from the public, Indigenous Peoples, provinces, territories, municipalities, and stakeholders on three main priorities of the assessment:
• Assessing Canada’s infrastructure needs and establishing a long-term vision;
• Improving coordination among infrastructure owners and funders; and
• Determining the best ways to fund and finance infrastructure.
The National Infrastructure Assessment, once in place, will help identify Canada’s evolving needs and priorities in the built environment and undertake evidence-based long-term planning toward a net-zero emissions future.
Deadline for receiving feedback is June 30, 2021.
