Social Infrastructures

The Government of Canada is working to give every Canadian a real and fair chance at success, in part by making investments in indigenous communities, early learning and childcare, affordable housing, home care, and cultural and recreational infrastructure. InfraBiz will help our clients be part of the opportunities.

Affordable Housing

Many cities in Canada face a shortage of affordable houses. Combined with an extremely aggressive real estate market that has pushed people out of the cities, the affordable housing projects are places where families and individuals live in safe, well-maintained and affordable housing with respect and dignity and where people have equal opportunities to succeed. Affordable housing projects will, among other things, enhance partnerships with indigenous communities, prevent homelessness, meet diverse housing needs for seniors, continue the revitalization of neighbourhoods.

Hospitals, Nursing Homes and Research Facilities

Hospitals, Nursing Houses, Research facilities, among others, are crucial to the Canadian people. They are the backbone of a healthy society. Most of these facilities are publicly owned. However, there is a large private component, either on the management and also on the development.  During the recent pandemic, the health sector has been fueled with funding, and it is not foreseen that scenario will change in the near future.

Schools and Education Buildings

Elementary Schools, High-Schools, Colleges and Universities are relevant infrastructures of modern society. However, most of these buildings are old and need to be refurbished and replaced. Canada isn't different; most of the current assets were built in some cases half a century ago to almost a century ago. They are not functional and up to current standards. The investment to upgrade these assets is allocated, and it is estimated at several billion dollars. 

Public Artworks

Public artworks programs have a transformative effect on the Canadian city's fabric, vitality and dynamic. The governing principle for the percent for Public Art Program is that art is a public benefit to be enjoyed and experienced by residents and visitors throughout the city. The privately-owned art is intended to make buildings and open spaces more attractive and interesting and improve the public realm's quality. The Program requires that the artwork must be clearly visible at all times from publicly accessible areas. 

Community Infrastructures

Community centres are a great resource for newcomers and Canadians alike. These centres provide a variety of facilities suitable for recreation and fitness, sports, childcare, arts, and culture. They are hubs of activity and an asset to the community due to the sheer number of services they provide. Canada is funding the construction, expansion and modernization of existing facilities, acquiring new spaces, furniture and essential specialized equipment.
