Knowledge & Research
The CIB’s Knowledge and Research initiative is an additional way to have a meaningful impact on the evolution of infrastructure investment in Canada. High quality research supports the development of good projects by the CIB, its public and private sector partners and can lead to better informed policy and investment choices.
As we build a centre of expertise, our goal is to partner with leading experts from across Canada. We want to develop and distribute knowledge and research relevant to the CIB and our stakeholders. We aim to enhance understanding and acceptance of infrastructure investment approaches involving the private sector and expand our thought leadership within the sector.
Our strategic priorities for 2020-21:
- accelerating strategically identified research topics/themes;
- engaging with a network of thought-leaders, including academics and think-tanks, to define and deliver knowledge and research that is net new to the Canadian infrastructure landscape;
- engaging with federal, provincial, territorial and municipal governments and Indigenous communities to develop and execute policy research initiatives; and
- building our capacity as a centre of expertise.
