Modern and reliable infrastructure drives our economy. It contributes to our province’s wealth and productivity, and it helps us attract investment and create jobs.
Other countries like the United States and China are investing heavily in infrastructure. To remain competitive we need to do the same.
Infrastructure also shapes our communities, improves our standard of living and gives us a better quality of life.
Just like your house or your car, our infrastructure must be maintained. Our climate, wear and tear, and even time, all affect the performance of our roads, buildings, transit, and water and wastewater systems. We need to take care of our infrastructure through regular maintenance, expansion and upgrades to get the most out of it.
Our province is changing. As our population grows, ages and diversifies, we need to make sure we have the right infrastructure to meet that challenge.
