Study, Research, and Professional Development Opportunities in Australia
Have you ever wanted to visit Australia? How about combining that visit
with financial support and professional development opportunities? The
Australian government wants to help you with making that happen. They
are looking for Canadian and U.S. applicants for their Endeavour
Scholarships and Fellowships. Applications for a number of different
opportunities are due on June 30, 2014. Visit the website for more
details at: http://orau.org/endeavourscholarships/

Look globally for infrastructure investments
Infrastructure stocks provide important portfolio diversification and steady cash flow, but the best opportunities are mostly found outside Canada, where toll roads, bridges, ports, airports are more firmly entrenched on public markets.
Global infrastructure, capital spending to hit $9 trillion by 2025
Global spending on capital projects and infrastructure will shift from West to East, and jump to more than $9 trillion a year by 2025, according to a forecast released on Monday by accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers.
The growth will be driven by China, which overtook the United States as the top spender on capital and infrastructure in 2009, Pricewaterhouse said. Globally, this investment spending stood at just $4 trillion in 2012.
Infrastructure foot-dragging hinders growth
Finance Minister Ken Krawetz made a good point when the federal budget was released in February, saying it was important for provinces to have clarity about Ottawa's national infrastructure funding program.
Now, with construction season well underway across Canada and details still scant from federal officials about the Building Canada Fund, Mr. Krawetz is right to join fellow provincial finance ministers in demanding that Ottawa provide the information quickly so that project plans can proceed.
