A capital project is a project to construct, renew or expand the City’s capital assets (i.e. facilities, roads, water and sewer infrastructure, and equipment). Capital assets are essential to delivering a wide range of services to the public over the long term. Capital projects usually require large financial investments and can span multiple years. Some capital projects are annual in nature such as streets rehab, bridge and culvert repair/replacements, and retaining wall repairs. Other projects are one-time such as the building of a new recreation facility, a new shared use path, or replacement of underground infrastructure.

The City funds capital projects in a variety of ways including cost-shared funding agreements with the federal and/or provincial government and through its annual capital out of revenue program. The City prioritizes projects and considers: public safety, flooding, infrastructure rehabilitation based on condition assessment, and asset enhancement. There are also considerations for types of funding available, for example, federal and provincial programs may be based on themes such as public transit, climate change, housing, etc.

The projects listed on this page are considered high profile capital projects for which a project page has been created. While there is no public engagement associated with the project, there is a question and answer tool available, and the project timelines and milestones are kept up to date during construction. Clicking on the name of a project will take you to that project page.
