Needs for infrastructure in Canadian cities are increasing and significant, yet, the current methods of financing, funding, delivering, and maintaining urban infrastructures are insufficient and inadequate, which is evident by Canada’s mounting urban infrastructure debt.

New Tools for New Times sets out to deliver information on tools for infrastructure financing, funding, and delivery that are both traditional and innovative. The report assesses the applicability of these tools and the role of governments in advancing their usage.

New Tools for New Times is part of the Canada West Foundation’s Western Cities Project, authored by Senior Policy Analyst, Casey Vander Ploeg with assistance from Policy Analyst, Kari Roberts.
