Infrastructure – An Investment in Our Prosperity
ACEC believes that infrastructure investment is a priority issue for Canadians and is interested in the governments' position on this issue. Infrastructure is a core responsibility of government and decisive leadership is needed in 2015 and beyond.
- The three levels of government (federal, provincial, municipal) should work towards a collective goal of restoring infrastructure investment to 6% of GDP.
- The commitment to infrastructure investments needs to strategic, predictable and ongoing in order to provide the best value and return on investments to Canadians.
- Investments must be made based upon a clear, efficient and transparent application process that reflects the demonstrated needs of communities and the economy.
- Asset management by communities is required in order to demonstrate and prioritize real needs and to objectively measure the success of infrastructure investments.
