What the experts say

A new direction for our economy

Canadians have been struggling for 10 years to get ahead — and for most people, things aren’t getting better. It’s time for a new plan, and a new direction for our economy. While Stephen Harper and Thomas Mulcair both promise more cuts, Justin Trudeau will invest in people, and things that make our everyday lives better. Transit. Roads. Clean energy. Schools. Hospitals. The basic infrastructure our economy needs to grow and we need in order to get ahead.

Investing in the building blocks of opportunity

Public transit infrastructure

Our plan quadruples Federal investment in public transit. And to make sure projects actually get built, we’ll make funding flexible for municipalities. That means you’ll spend less time in traffic, and more time with your loved ones.

Social infrastructure

A Liberal government will provide almost $20 billion over 10 years for social infrastructure — things like affordable housing, child care spaces, communities centres, and more. We’ll help build things that make a positive difference in your life.

Green infrastructure

We will invest nearly $6 billion over the next 4 years and $20 billion over 10 years in green infrastructure. This will create greener energy, cleaner land, and more good jobs for Canadians. Our plan invests in a stronger economy and a cleaner environment.

The Liberal plan will create jobs, grow the economy, and put more money in Canadians’ pockets – not in a decade, but right away.
