Sustainable Infrastructure


The ability of Canadian communities to redirect their existing infrastructure to more sustainable forms, to anticipate the effects of climate change impacts on that infrastructure and to optimize energy savings through retrofitting of and maintenance of existing infrastructure will determine our country’s future prosperity. Infrastructure plays a critical role in the capacity of Canadian communities to realize these sustainable development goals, to enhance their competitiveness, and even more importantly, their ability to innovate.
