Have Your Say on Canada’s Infrastructure Plan

The Government of Canada has laid out a plan to invest more than $120 billion in infrastructure over the next 10 years and Phase 1 [1] is already underway. As Infrastructure Canada plans for Phase 2, it is seeking input from communities, stakeholders, and Canadians through the new website, infraconsults.ca [2].

The Government of Canada is interested in your thoughts on four important themes:

Cultural and recreational infrastructure is included under the Social Infrastructure theme. This is a rare opportunity to make sure that our sector can tap into this $120 billion investment.

Here’s how you can act:

  1. Visit infraconsults.ca [2].
  2. Fill in the eWorkbook on social infrastructure [3] and provide your opinion on cultural infrastructure. It’s a very short survey that takes no more than 2 minutes to complete. Once you are registered, you may also fill the other eWorkbooks.
  3. Encourage other to participate on social media, using the #INFRAconsults hashtag. You may also send a tweet to @INFC_eng [4].
  4. Choose another consultation activity: participate in the discussion forums [5], watch video submissions [6] and send your own, read or send written submissions [7].
  5. Organize a community-led event [8].

The Canadian Arts Coalition is preparing a written submission and we will share it with you shortly. If you have any input to provide, please drop us a comment, below. In the meantime, here are a few amazing facts about the benefits of arts venues [9].

With your support, we can help ensure that the perspective of the cultural sector informs the identification of the funding priorities for Phase 2 and the development of the Government of Canada’s infrastructure plan.
