The Ontario government released its quarterly P3 Market Update last week, highlighting 39 major infrastructure projects with an estimated value of $60 billion.
“The market needs certainty and these P3 quarterly updates provide just that,” said Kinga Surma, minister of infrastructure. “The pandemic has presented us with many challenges, but our government has continued to move forward with building and supporting important infrastructure projects to ensure the health and safety of all Ontarians, while also creating new jobs and supporting our economic future.”
The P3 update is a list of infrastructure projects that use the public-private partnership (P3) model in the pre-procurement and procurement stages for which Ontario has committed investments.
