About the Workshop
Public-Private Partnerships (P3s) are used for surface transportation projects on both sides of the border. In Canada, many of the significant transit projects over the last decade have been procured through a P3 approach. By comparison, the number of P3 projects in the US is much lower. Why? What are the commonalities and differences between P3s in the US and Canada? Explore P3s and get perspectives about their public and political receptivity. Hear viewpoints from both sides of the border. How could we better align our approaches to P3s? What could we do to promote cross-border pollination of alternative procurement models and investments?
