Why is infrastructure investment important?
- Infrastructure grows the economy, strengthens communities and protects the environment.
- It creates jobs and prosperity.
- Sustained, predictable infrastructure investment makes good business sense for governments, taxpayers and all Canadians.
Investment in infrastructure is an investment in our prosperity
The Association of Consulting Engineering Companies – Canada (ACEC) believes that infrastructure investment is a priority issue for Canadians and is pleased that the federal government has made significant commitments to invest in Canada's infrastructure. ACEC looks forward to working with the government to ensure infrastructure investments are effective, efficient and provide the best results for Canadians. These investments will continue to strengthen the economy and enhance Canada's competitiveness.
