World-class infrastructure is the backbone of our country’s economic productivity. The New Building Canada Plan builds on the Government’s unprecedented investments in infrastructure. Many communities have already benefitted from the Building Canada Fund and the New Building Canada Plan will ensure that many more will.

In 2007, an investment of $33 billion resulted in over 12,000 provincial, territorial and municipal infrastructure projects across Canada. The stimulus phase of Canada’s Economic Action Plan (EAP) supported an additional 30,000 infrastructure projects that created immediate jobs and enhanced Canada’s long-term economic growth and competitiveness. The New Building Canada Plan, introduced in EAP13, represents the largest and longest federal infrastructure plan in our nation’s history. The New Building Canada Plan includes $53 billion for provincial, territorial and municipal infrastructure over the next decade.
