Investing in Canada Plan funding stream: Trade and Transportation infrastructure

Investing in COVID-19 Community Resilience

On this page


The programs in the Trade and Transportation stream are improving flow of the transportation system by building stronger, more resilient, and more efficient trade corridors to access global markets. These connections create more middle-class jobs and enable Canadian businesses to grow and compete.  

Programs from this stream are improving the reliability and fluidity of freight movements across Canada and to global markets.

Contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)

The Plan's Trade and Transportation programs support the SDG objectives of providing resilient and sustainable infrastructure as well as increase employment and economic growth.
