Canada’s Premiers Outline Priorities

All provinces and territories have significant and urgent needs for infrastructure. In addition, Northern territories are faced with unique challenges that call for robust investments in infrastructure to improve the lives of northerners. Premiers call on the federal government to increase its total support by $10 billion per year for 10 years and streamline its approach to infrastructure. The federal government must also provide more flexibility to provinces and territories in order to respect their priorities.

The Council of the Federation comprises all 13 provincial and territorial Premiers. It enables Premiers to work collaboratively, form closer ties, foster constructive relationships among governments, and show leadership on important issues that matter to Canadians.
