“Alberta needs to plan and build infrastructure to meet the needs of our future population, support services like health care and education, and grow the economy. The NDP have failed to deliver predictable funding and have let ideology get in the way of making proper use of practical financing options like public-private partnerships. The United Conservatives understand the importance of determining infrastructure investments with a view to Alberta’s prosperity. It is more important than ever that our infrastructure investment decisions minimize the cost to taxpayers and maximize the benefits to Alberta’s economy and jobs.”

  • A United Conservative government will pass the Alberta Infrastructure Act to provide transparency on how the Government of Alberta prioritizes projects, establish predictable funding levels, and ensure adequate maintenance of existing assets.
  • A United Conservative government will implement a more transparent capital project reporting framework, so Albertans will be able to hold the government accountable for delivering capital projects and programs on budget, on time, and within scope.
  • A United Conservative government will use alternate financing, such as public-private-partnerships, for procurement of capital projects when value for money can be achieved for taxpayers.
  • A United Conservative government will focus on infrastructure investments that support key public services, like health and education, and our economy, like roads.
