The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a heavy toll on Canada’s economy. While government’s focus on emergency support to vulnerable Canadians has helped manage the crisis, attention is now turning to our options to support economic recovery. In times of economic crisis, government often looks to investment in infrastructure as an effective tool for engaging multiple industries while providing essential services to citizens.
This panel discussion shared information and perspectives on available programs and opportunities for consultants and clients to work together to develop projects. The panel features a northern BC perspective, with ACEC Canada’s views on how federal programs can contribute to the recovery. Guest panelists included:
- John Gamble, President & CEO, ACEC Canada
- Patrick Kehoe, Advisor, Green Municipal Fund, Federation of Canadian Municipalities
- Charles Scott, Director, Business Development, HubSpace
- Derek Baker, Northern Development Initiative Trust
