Infrastructure maintenance: A priority of the ten-year capital works program

The ten-year capital works program is made up of major projects and investment programs that the city plans to undertake over the next 10 years. For the period of 2023-2032, these investments total $22 billion.

Maintaining aging infrastructure remains our priority: 68.1 per cent of planned investments are aimed at maintaining existing facilities, rather than developing new projects.

In 2023, the main investments will be in water infrastructure ($763.4 million) and road infrastructure ($476.4 million).
