Ontario Minister of Infrastructure Laurie Scott has unveiled a $65-billion P3 project pipeline that she says will be a significant driver of economic prosperity and job creation for the province, particularly for the construction sector.

The 2019 Infrastructure Ontario (IO) Market Update lays out 32 projects that are currently in the active procurement or pre-procurement stages plus 11 more projects in planning. The pipeline includes 16 health care projects, seven more than the last update released two years ago, and makes clear that the five new GTA (Greater Toronto Area) transit projects announced in the spring are signature works for the government.

Scott was joined by IO president and CEO Ehren Cory at a pipeline reveal event hosted by the Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships in Toronto on Sept. 10.
