Investing in Ontario’s Infrastructure: A Prosperity at Risk Perspective

This report, by the Canadian Centre for Economic Analysis (CANCEA), co-sponsored by OCS and the Residential and Civil Construction Alliance of Ontario, uses agent-based modelling to investigate the long-term economic impact of infrastructure investments. Under this approach, public infrastructure investments are shown to generate an economic return on real GDP that is almost eight times as large as the impact predicted by traditional economic models.
