Natan is a recognized and respected Indigenous leader known for his stirring and impactful case for why the Inuit need greater social equity, health, infrastructure, access to broadband and more in the Canadian Arctic. His keynote will put the spotlight on the significant infrastructure deficit confronting Inuit and Indigenous communities more broadly across Canada (estimated at $30 billion to $40 billion) and the immediate need for innovative new approaches to enable these communities, governments and the private sector to work together to address this gap. Natan’s remarks will outline his vision for how we can significantly move forward together on these pressing issues.

General Session 2: Tackling the Shortage in Skilled Trades
SNC-Lavalin Grand Ballroomshow more
Billions are flowing into infrastructure projects across Canada, with multiple mega projects in transit, energy and transportation coming to market at the same time. Demand — and competition — has perhaps never been greater for skilled trades, everyone from boilermakers to carpenters, which can impact project risks. How dire is the situation? And what are industry and the public sector doing to step up and manage this demand while helping create the skilled workers of tomorrow?

1A: Should I Stay or Should I Go? Strengthening the P3 Market
 show more
A number of companies globally have recently announced they are pulling out of P3s or scaling back their involvement. At the same time, other companies have seized the moment and see opportunity calling. What’s driving these changes? And what should governments do to keep P3s attractive and competition healthy?

1B: Phase 2: Navigating the Risk of Future Transit Expansions
 show more
Canada is currently experiencing a golden age in developing large-scale urban transit projects in multiple cities. To keep timelines and costs in check, most of these projects are being delivered in phases and some are even building onto existing decades-old systems. Having systems that can ‘talk’ to one another and fit together seamlessly are significant issues. Having flexible contracts is another. How is the P3 community designing long-term agreements that not only deal with the designing, building, operation and maintenance of these complex systems today but also anticipate — and prepare for — changing technological and contractual needs arising from augmentation and expansion in the decades to come? And what are the lessons learned from transit that can be applied to other sectors involved in projects with similar expansion needs?

2B: The Evolution of the P3 Model: Perspectives from the Indigenous & Development Communities at the Forefront of Change
 show more
Greater Indigenous involvement and a changing climate are leading to an important evolution in the P3 model as we know it. A world-leading project in Canada’s North is among the first to address a number of these changes. In the process, it’s also creating the next-gen P3 in concert with its surrounding Indigenous community, which has a cash-funded equity stake in the project. What are the lessons and approaches we can glean from the Tłı̨chǫ All-Season Road project for other public infrastructure projects?

3A: Indigenous Infrastructure: Stop Talking and Start Building
 show more
CCPPP research estimates that the indigenous infrastructure gap is into the tens of billions of dollars. There are innovative approaches to close this gap including: improved approaches to planning and delivering local infrastructure projects; and, indigenous participation in large linear resource projects. Participating in major resource projects can, under certain circumstances, generate long-term predictable revenue streams that indigenous communities can use, with the appropriate planning, to support local infrastructure projects, which serve community member needs and improve social outcomes. Case studies will be discussed to identify how these complementary approaches work and how the private sector could bring innovative approaches to close the indigenous infrastructure gap.

SNC-Lavalin Grand Ballroom show more

Kathleen Savio head shotKathleen Savio, CEO, Zurich North America
In the insurance world, the spectre of climate change is increasingly present. The proof, after all, is in the data. When it comes to assessing risk, the warming of our planet Earth has significant implications for how we build and maintain public infrastructure for decades to come. It might just be the biggest risk we’ve ever faced. As one of the world’s leading insurers, Zurich has seen first-hand the devastation natural disasters inflict on people, businesses and communities. That’s why they’ve developed practices and policies that are driving changes in how people and companies behave to manage and reduce climate risks. Zurich North America CEO Kathleen Savio will give an address on what this means for the insurability of at-risk populations. She’ll discuss what we can do now to make projects more resilient to damage caused by more frequent and violent storms, as well as the role that public-private partnerships play in driving Zurich’s climate strategy.
