Canada's Infrastructure Report Card

Description:In September of 2012, Canada’s first Infrastructure Report Card was released. The report,created by the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE),the Canadian Public Works Association (CPWA), the Canadian Construction Association (CCA) and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM), consolidates data obtained from a voluntary survey designed to assess the condition of municipal infrastructure from 2009-2010.The Infrastructure Report Card represents the first time that the state of our municipal drinking water, wastewater, stormwater and road systems have been evaluated at a national level. The overall rating for the four asset categories show that a significant amount of municipal infrastructure ranks between fair and very poor – on average about 30%. The replacement cost of these assets alone totals $171.8 billion nationally. Roads are in the worst condition with an estimated replacement cost of $91.1 billion.
