From shovel ready to shovel worthy
CTIP is about long-term (20+ years) coordination and planning of investments in trade infrastructure (road, rail, air, port and marine assets) along key economic corridors to enhance their fluidity and reliability, boost Canada’s competitiveness, and restore our global reputation.
Let this be a first for Canada: a long-term trade infrastructure plan, developed jointly by governments and industry, with an unwavering focus on strategic national priorities and return on investment. We can generate greater value by prioritizing projects that are shovel worthy, rather than shovel ready.
Implementing CTIP will result in an efficient, world-class national trade network for the movement of Canadian products — from industry, local communities, provinces and territories — to domestic and international markets. This is good for all Canadians.
