Climate-Ready Infrastructure

The infrastructure we build today will last decades, to 2050 and beyond. Every project we build — whether a water treatment facility, public transit project, or community rec centre — has to reduce pollution and be built to be resilient to the impact of climate change such as flooding, fires, coastal erosion, and extreme heat. But to do this, project builders need access to the right resources and knowledge.

A re-elected Liberal government will:

  • Create open-access climate toolkits to help infrastructure owners and investors develop projects that ensure Canada is on the path to a net-zero emissions and resilient future. Building on our existing climate lens requirement for federally funded infrastructure projects, these toolkits will offer resiliency assessment methodologies, opportunities for incorporating low-carbon technologies and building materials, and carbon emission calculation guidelines.
