Canada’s Core Public Infrastructure survey provides Canadian communities with information needed to make smart decisions for modern

Infrastructure Canada

Communities across Canada need the tools and support to make evidence-based decisions for well-planned, modern public infrastructure that will help develop healthier, safer, and stronger communities.

The Honourable Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, and Infrastructure and Communities, welcomed the release of data on the status of Canada’s public transit through Canada’s Core Public Infrastructure (CCPI) survey, for reference year 2020.

The survey supports an evidence and results based approach to public infrastructure policies, programs and investment decisions. The CCPI presents a statistically accurate and comprehensive landscape of public infrastructure in Canada. The most recent survey for reference year 2020 builds on the previous data releases from reference years 2016 and 2018.

The CCPI survey is supported by Infrastructure Canada, which provides funding for data and research initiatives to better inform how federal infrastructure funding programs are designed, implemented, tracked and reported. The survey aims to help all orders of government make informed decisions regarding public infrastructure investments in order to provide the modern infrastructure that Canada needs.

The CCPI gathers information through a survey on asset management practices in nine categories of public infrastructure: roads; bridges and tunnels; potable water; wastewater; storm water; culture, recreation and sports facilities; social and affordable housing; public transit; and, solid waste.

This release of data on the status of Canada’s public transit provides a thorough snapshot of the public transit stock, condition and performance in Canada.

Since 2015, Infrastructure Canada has invested over $23.5 billion to support public transit in communities across the country.

The public transit data is now available through the Statistics Canada website.
