Governance

The Government of Canada sets the overall policy direction and high-level investment priorities of the CIB. We work cooperatively with all levels of government, private investors and project sponsors to identify potential investments and make independent commercial decisions.

The Canada Infrastructure Bank is accountable to Parliament through the Minister of Infrastructure and Communities. For more information, see the Infrastructure Canada website and The Canada Infrastructure Bank Act.

The Minister of Infrastructure and Communities Statement of Priorities and Accountabilities (SPA) to the Board and Chair of Canada Infrastructure Bank.

Board of Directors

As a Crown corporation, we operate at arm’s length from the government. We are governed by an independent, professional Board of Directors, which assumes responsibility for the stewardship and supervises our direction and management.

The Board Code of Conduct and Conflict of Interest for Directors Policy aim to foster a climate of honesty, truthfulness and integrity in all Board activities. The Board of Directors has adopted the Statement of Corporate Governance Policies and Practices to communicate its corporate governance practices.
