Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program funding has been approved for 84 projects in over 30 Alberta constituencies supporting transit, green infrastructure and community facility upgrades in the province.

Investing in public infrastructure
Demonstrating financial stewardship
- Alberta Infrastructure effectively manages government-owned and operated facilities in a cost-effective and efficient manner ensuring taxpayers money is spent wisely.
- Alberta’s government works to reinforce fairness, transparency and integrity in the procurement process.
- Alberta Infrastructure is exploring public-private partnerships for priority infrastructure projects in Alberta.
Ensuring long-term stability
- Building Forward: Alberta's 20-Year Strategic Capital Plan provides a blueprint for long-term infrastructure investment and development.
Budget 2022 is moving Alberta forward by building health system capacity, getting more Albertans working, and balancing the budget.
The new policy fulfils a mandate to limit the use of cost-plus contracts, ensuring fiscal accountability and making prudent use of public money.
New legislation will help the Government of Alberta make decisions to deliver infrastructure projects, such as schools and hospitals, based on legislated criteria and long-term planning.
The government is doubling the capital maintenance and renewal (CMR) funding in 2020-21 from $937 million to $1.9 billion. These smaller projects (like repairing roofs and replacing boilers) are creating jobs.
