2012 Canadian Infrastructure Report Card Released
Canada’s first report card on municipal infrastructure offers an objective assessment of the state of infrastructure, and the state of infrastructure management, in 123 municipalities. The report provides an assessment of the condition of four primary asset categories of municipal infrastructure: drinking-water systems, wastewater and stormwater networks, and municipal roads. This is the first assessment of its kind in Canada, and features the most comprehensive analysis and reporting to date on Canada’s municipal infrastructure. It highlights the critical need to continue to build and renew the infrastructure that is key to our national economic competitiveness and quality of life for Canadians.
