A Joint Presentation of Edmonton FMI and IPAC Chapters.
The public looks to all levels of government to build and maintain infrastructure to support the economic and social well being of their communities. At the same time, the public is asking how infrastructure expenditures can be made more effective, efficient and how the results can be brought on line sooner and with less disruption. The innovation and flexibility of private enterprise needs to meet the funding and legislative power of the public sector and thus the concepts of Public, Private Partnerships (P3s) was born. The speakers/panelists are:
- Federal Perspective: Dr. Cheryl Nelms, PWGSC, Canada
- Provincial Perspective: Neill McQuay, Alberta Infrastructure
- Municipal Perspective: Wayne Mandryk, City of Edmonton
- Union Perspective: Marle Roberts, CUPE Alberta
