Tapping Canada’s infrastructure potential to rebuild the economy—and its relationship with Indigenous peoples
A spotlight has been shone on project development in Canada as a potential instrument of post-crisis economic renewal. In this episode, moderator Rudyard Griffiths speaks with partners from across the firm on how the pandemic has brought projects in Canada to a turning point, and how government, industry players and Indigenous communities can work together to rebuild Canada’s economy.
Infrastructure partners Mark Bain and Tara Mackay discuss the scope of challenges in a new environment where investor risk appetite has shifted: how will projects be prioritized and financed; and what models and structures will be used to deliver them? Partners Valerie Helbronner and John Terry share their thoughts on the changing nature of projects with Indigenous involvement, and how an influx of projects during recovery presents an opportunity to advance the goals of reconciliation with Indigenous peoples in Canada.
