In partnership with Infrastructure Canada and Global Affairs Canada, we are proud to announce three key presentations from the Hon. Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, Canada, Mr. Glenn Campbell, Assistant Deputy Minister of the Canada Infrastructure Bank Transition Office at Infrastructure Canada and Angela Bogdan, Consul General for Canada.

This stream will commence at 4:00pm on Day 1 (28th June 2017) of the summit. These esteemed speakers will be presenting on the Canada Infrastructure Bank, a brand-new initiative that aims to innovate in the way infrastructure is financed infrastructure in Canada by involving private investors to build transformative projects that benefit Canadians.

The Canada Infrastructure Bank is part of a long term plan to make historic investments in infrastructure to create long term growth, support Canada’s green agenda and encourage social inclusion. This plan focuses on five key investment areas: public transit, green infrastructure, social infrastructure, trade and transportation and rural and northern communities across Canada. The Canada Infrastructure Bank will be a new tool to help build more infrastructure by creating the right environment for private investors to participate in revenue-generating projects, whether it is roads and bridges, public transit, energy transmission or resource roads.

The stream is free for anyone registering for the conference. But for people who don’t want to go to the conference and only want to attend the stream, it will be $275 +GST.
