Infrastructure and Municipal Affairs

According to Statistics Canada, 81% of Canada’s total population lives in urban centres.  With this concentration of population, cities play an important role in the economic growth and development of the country.

What infrastructure do cities need to be successful?  How can their role be best supported by other levels of government?  How can investment in infrastructure be targeted to maximize economic benefit while maintaining fiscal discipline?
