“Extensive list” of infrastructure projects in Canada

Posted by: Skylar In: news

The Daily Commercial News is providing a detailed list of “shovel-ready” projects in Canada.  I’m not sure that I like the term “shovel-ready”, but here’s how they define it in the article:

The projects range from small to large-sized projects and are focused on the rehabilitation of existing infrastructure. The projects fit into existing footprints, will not trigger environmental assessments and have “relatively simple” and quick engineering requirements, according to FCM.

The article begins with links to each province/territory where you can see proposed projects, funding and predicted job creation for various projects in cities within each region.  Take a look at your provincial page to see what sorts of projects are on the waiting list in your municipal region.

The proposal presents a total of $13.7 billion worth of work on our country’s infrastructure, including $163 million of work in the KW area alone.
