Investing in Canada: a long term infrastructure plan to build the Canada of the 21st century7:45am-9:00am | Chateau Laurier - 1 Rideau Street , Ottawa
The government of Canada has been hard at work to deliver on a commitment to develop a plan for historic investments in infrastructure. Through smart, strategic and predictable investments, the government seeks to create long-term growth and jobs for the middle class, help meet its environmental targets and build a low carbon economy, and build communities where everyone has opportunity. This is a transformational plan for Canada and one that will foster innovative projects and financing tools. Minister Sohi will provide an overview of this plan which will invest in reliable transit routes, affordable housing, clean water to drink, community centres where people can gather, and much more.

Minister of Infrastructure and Communities
Government of Canada
The Honourable Amarjeet Sohi is the Member of Parliament for Edmonton—Mill Woods and the Minister of Infrastructure and Communities.
Prior to being elected Member of Parliament, Minister Sohi was a three-term Edmonton City Councillor. This experience taught him the importance of infrastructure as the foundation for citizens to create strong, sustainable, and inclusive communities.
Dedicated to improving Edmonton’s infrastructure and liveability, Minister Sohi represented the city on the Canadian Urban Transit Association and strongly advocated for Light Rail Transit. He also brought forward his passion for inclusive city-building through his representation at the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association and in leading City Council’s Immigration, Multiculturalism, and Racism Free Edmonton initiatives.
Since assuming the Infrastructure and Communities portfolio, Minister Sohi has overseen the design and early implementation of a more than $180 billion plan over 12 years – the largest infrastructure investment plan in Canada’s history. This plan invests unprecedented amounts in public transit, green infrastructure, clean water and waste water, affordable housing, trade-enabling infrastructure, rural and northern communities, and more.
Minister Sohi has received several awards in recognition of his community leadership and lives in Edmonton with his wife and daughter.
