Canada's biggest infrastructure projects

By anna smith

In a bid to revitalise the economy, Canada will increase its spending on infrastructure projects by an extra $81 billion over the next 12 years, Finance Minister Bill Morneau said on Tuesday.

"This is unprecedented in our history. And it comes at a time when the need is great," Morneau told the House of Commons as he presented a fiscal update. He also added that he wanted to invest for long-term success.

We consulted a ‘Top 100 Projects for 2016’ list from ReNew Canada for a look at some of things that that the government may invest in from now until 2027/28. Here are the top 10 projects for 2016:
