Leadership in Sustainable Infrastructure / Leadership en infrastructures
Energy infrastructure needed to fuel export growth
Global economic activity is expected to strengthen over the coming year, and increased momentum in the U.S. and China should lift Canada's energy exports, according to recent HSBC research.
But the latest HSBC Global Connections Trade Forecast issues a caveat: in the long term, Canada's ability to access fast-growing emerging markets is dependent on an increase in energy infrastructure capacity.
Winnipeg mayoral candidates debate crumbling infrastructure
All seven mayoral hopefuls debated the city's roads at a forum on infrastructure hosted by the Association of Manitoba Municipalities and the Canadian Automobile Association.
About 150 people watched the discussion. CAA Manitoba president and CEO, Mike Mager, said organizers had to switch to a bigger venue at the last moment due to high interest in the debate.
"I think it's good to hear the candidates points and views. And we thought it was important to bring up infrastructure," said Mager.

If emerging economies are to prosper and compete in the 21st century, according to Enrique García, president and CEO of Latin America's largest development bank, there are two areas in need of critical attention:
"Education and infrastructure... That is why we are here at the University of Toronto."
García and a delegation from CAF — the development bank of Latin America — signed a letter of intent with U of T's Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering. Together the two organizations will explore innovative methods for sustainable urban development.
NCG completes infrastructure maintenance at Three Bluffs project

North Country Gold Corp. recently announced the company has completed a site and infrastructure maintenance program at its Three Bluffs Gold project located northeast of Baker Lake, in Nunavut, Canada. The four-week program addressed servicing of camp infrastructure, motive and drill equipment fleet and included site visits by key consultants to allow completion of a PEA if permissible during Q4, 2014 and Q1, 2015.
Alberta to take a long-range view on infrastructure
Alberta is going to start thinking a little bit more about the long term when it comes to capital spending, but critics argue that won’t matter much if it doesn't come with dollars attached.
The new Infrastructure Minister Manmeet Bhullar has been mandated to draft five and 25-year capital plans, longer than the provincial government has typically planned.
Bhullar said with the growth the province is experiencing government can't afford to think short term.
