INFRASTRUCTURE AND GROWTH PLANNING - VOTE 4003

The infrastructure program supports the development and implementation of sound infrastructure strategies for the province, including: central agency management of the provincial infrastructure planning process and capital budget development; implementation of the long-term infrastructure plan; development of horizontal and sectoral infrastructure policy and program proposals; negotiation with the federal government on new cost-shared infrastructure programs; coordination of infrastructure program implementation, including programs to support municipal infrastructure; development and implementation of a government asset management framework; infrastructure economics and financial analysis and advice; and information management for infrastructure investments.

The growth-planning program leads the development and implementation of the government's province-wide growth management policy. This includes creating regional growth management plans with local governments, Aboriginal communities and other affected stakeholders, and the broader public as well as facilitating the alignment of multi-ministry government policy and funding to support program implementation.
