About the CIB:
Our purpose is to invest $35 billion of federal funding in revenue-generating infrastructure projects that are in the public interest and that attract private capital. The CIB is a catalyst for private investment in projects that support economic growth for the benefit of Canadians. We are working on projects, from coast to coast to coast, that reflect our core sectors for investment – green infrastructure, clean power, public transit, trade and transportation and enhanced broadband infrastructure.
