The Ontario government has released the latest P3 Market Update in June, highlighting 38 major infrastructure projects using the public-private partnerships (P3) model and valued at an estimated $60 billion.
“The P3 Market Update demonstrates our government’s commitment to investing in key infrastructure projects that support economic growth, community improvements and local job creation,” said Laurie Scott, minister of infrastructure.
“Our infrastructure investments in health care, highways and other community safety projects, especially those included in this Market Update, contribute to Ontario’s economic renewal and long-term recovery.”
The P3 Market Update, released four times a year, is a list of public projects in the pre-procurement and procurement stages for which Ontario has committed investments.
The list helps potential local and global private-sector partners organize their time and resources to make sure Ontario gets robust, innovative and competitive bids for its P3 infrastructure projects.
