Abstract

The Canada Infrastructure Bank (CIB) should be restructured in order to carry out its main role of mobilizing private funds for infrastructure finance. It should become more private sector-driven and market responsive. Combined with an effective government framework for public investment, including for participation in public private partnerships (PPP), this would provide a strong institutional foundation for addressing Canada’s infrastructure gap. It would allow mobilizing significant private sector resources for project finance, and ensure that such investment ultimately serves the public interest.
