It was a couple weeks after we all returned to work from a short break over the Holidays, and it was the last week before our return to Parliament. What a whirlwind of a week it was. It started with a very productive Cabinet retreat in St. Andrews-by-the-Sea, where my colleagues and I had the opportunity to look ahead and plan for the Parliamentary session, but also for the years to come in order to make sure we build the economy Canadians need for these challenging times. Of course, for us at Infrastructure Canada, this means doubling our infrastructure investments over the next 10 years to build vibrant, inclusive and sustainable communities. It also means investing rapidly in order to get the economy moving and create good quality jobs now. It's a great challenge we have set for ourselves, and it won't always be easy, but working together it's one we will meet.Read more about the Minister's Update: Cabinet Retreat, Atlantic Trip and Toronto Speech

I firmly believe the federal government's role is to listen to our partners and work with them to reach our goals and build stronger communities through sustainable and smart infrastructure projects.Read more about the Minister's Update: One Month In
