Infrastructure maintenance: a PDI priority

The PDI program includes a wide range of capital projects and programs that the city intends to undertake or complete over the next 10 years. For the period 2022-2031, these investments will total $19.54 billion.

Maintaining aging infrastructure remains our priority: 70.3% of the planned investments are aimed at maintaining existing facilities, rather than developing new projects.
