Submission to CIB 5-Year Legislative Review

Executive Summary The policy premises and context that led to the establishment of the Canada Infrastructure Bank (CIB) remain highly relevant and necessary, in the evolving policy and infrastructure landscape. However, certain changes are required, particularly with regards to addressing the specific needs of Canada’s territorial North including Nunatsiavut and Nunavik (hereafter called the ‘North’). Without fundamental changes, the CIB will not be able to effectively serve the North, its Indigenous communities, and the broader public infrastructure interests of all Canadians.1
