Federal infrastructure investment still needs work: CCA

A gap continues to exist in the level of federal investment allocated compared to what is needed to fix out country’s aging infrastructure, the Canadian Construction Association noted today in a meeting with the leadership of local construction associations.

CCA advocates for investments that will support our communities across Canada and restore our reputation as a trade nation. 

Among CCA’s specific areas of concern are:

  • National Infrastructure Assessment (NIA): CCA is seeing some political movement as the NIA Secretariat is now active. It has met with their its director, who will also present their work at the upcoming Meech Lake meeting (Oct. 13). 
  • Canada Trade Infrastructure Plan (CTIP): Following on the success of our provincial government relations work over the summer, the CCA and its partners released a CTIP public relations campaign in early September. Provincial governments remain engaged and are keeping the pressure on Ottawa.
  • Regained interest in infrastructure: Following the recent cabinet shuffle and caucus retreat, the new Minister on Infrastructure (Sean Fraser) is expected to make an important announcement in the fall. With renewed political interest in housing, CCA has an opportunity to align our priorities with their agenda.
