Ten thousand years is how much additional time commuters in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver spend stuck in traffic every single year as a result of road congestion from key bottlenecks in those cities. This severe congestion is an issue not just for businesses and residents of those cities, but for the entire Canadian economy. Highly focused infrastructure investments can help solve this problem and other major economic challenges that Canada faces.

The Chamber’s 2016 report, The Infrastructure That Matters Most, made the case for increased trade infrastructure investment to drive Canada’s international competitiveness.

What follows is an outline of seven problems in Canada that strategic public-private infrastructure investment can help solve.

Behind the reception desk at Ashcroft Terminal’s administrative office in Vancouver is an inspiringly Canadian painting.

Created by artist Jan Kasparec, the work depicts a lone, stationary train on a track through an alluring natural environment like that of British Columbia’s Interior.
