The Association of Consulting Engineering Companies-Canada (ACEC) launched an infrastructure advocacy campaign for the upcoming federal election in Canada.

ACEC will engage federal candidates from major parties and encourage them to make infrastructure investments a priority in their election platforms.

ACEC’s “Infrastructure: Prosperity by Design” campaign includes a dedicated website. The site provides information to educate candidates, political parties and the public about the importance of leveraging infrastructure to develop a strong economic and environmental vision for Canada’s recovery.

As Canada moves into post-pandemic recovery, ACEC believes there is an opportunity to rethink Canada’s vision and approach to infrastructure. ACEC says this vision can be achieved in part through initiatives such as the proposed National Infrastructure Assessment, which received broad support from stakeholders from a number of industries and across the political spectrum.

“This election is especially important because the next parliament will make critical decisions on how Canada will recover and prosper as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic,” says John Gamble, ACEC-Canada president and CEO. “In balancing the needs for immediate stimulus and a long-term vision for our economy and environment, investing in infrastructure has a proven return on investment that governments can rely on. We hope to see any elected government come in with an understanding of how important it is to provide infrastructure programs that are timely, consistent and predictable with a priority placed on the rapid delivery of funding – that approach to infrastructure will design Canada’s future prosperity.”

ACEC encourages Canadians to get involved by visiting the “Infrastructure: Prosperity by Design” website and joining the discussion on social media via #ProsperityByDesign and ACEC on Twitter.
