CILTNA Pacific Chapter Seminar
presented at the February 9th, 2017
Cargo Logistics Canada Conference
at the Vancouver Convention Centre
Is Privatization of Our National Ports and Airports
in Canadians' Best Interests?
The Canada Transportation Act Review was published in February 2016. For seaports, it recommended that the government investigate adopting a share-capital structure including receiving proposals from institutional investors or private equity investors. For airports, the review recommended privatization of large airports within three years. Since then, the government has moved to establish a Canada Infrastructure Bank. This CILTNA Seminar examined the issues through a discussion, question and answer period following prepared remarks delivered by two distinguished speakers. You will find the formal record of the event with a summary of what was said in the published Proceedings through the link below.
