Canada is generally regarded as a world leader in PPPs. PPP Canada, a Crown corporation that has run from 2008–18 to promote adoption of the model, has played a key part in establishing PPPs as an effective way to guarantee performance of infrastructure in all stages and procedures.
PPPs have since become widely used by different jurisdictions in Canada, demonstrating that the public sector’s capacity to manage these complex arrangements is mature.
Canada’s PPP market is strong and stable, and the Government of Canada continues to support the model as an efficient system to build more infrastructure across Canada. In 2019 investment in PPP projects reached an amount of USD 104 billion, after USD 15.2 billion in 2018 and USD 3.3 billion in 2017.
