Minister Philpott will highlight the challenges in overcoming the infrastructure deficit in indigenous communities and discuss the need for innovative solutions, including partnerships among these communities, government and the private sector. This innovation will be important as we work with Indigenous partners to build clean drinking water facilities, safe schools, all-season roads, clean and reliable energy, broadband connectivity, and housing in indigenous communities.
P3 2017 is all about forward thinking. It’s about opening our minds to delivering infrastructure in ways that haven’t yet been imagined. It’s about preparing for the evolution of a highly successful P3 model and avoiding the trap of saying “We’ve always done it that way”.
