Frequently Asked Questions
The Canada Infrastructure Bank (CIB) is a Crown corporation mandated to invest in infrastructure which benefits Canadians.
Our priority investment areas include: green infrastructure, clean power, public transit, trade and transportation and broadband infrastructure.
As an impact investor, we focus on new infrastructure which deliver results such as: economic growth, climate change action and connected communities.
We are also focused on providing advisory expertise and building knowledge as a centre of expertise about infrastructure investment.
We collaborate with federal, provincial, territorial and municipal governments, Indigenous partners, the private sector and institutional investors.
We actively seek new project opportunities which could benefit from our expertise, flexible and patient capital while crowding-in institutional and private sector investment.
We assess all investment opportunities based on their own merits. We work with partners from across Canada to determine the most efficient way to deliver infrastructure, whether it be through co-investments, public-private partnerships or other traditional forms of investment.
When assessing potential investments located in rural and northern communities, we carefully assess the specific challenges of developing infrastructure in these regions. We also consider how investments can contribute to the Government of Canada’s commitment to achieve reconciliation with Indigenous peoples.
