Ministry of Infrastructure - THE ESTIMATES, 2014-15 - Summary

The Ministry of Infrastructure is the central agency responsible for managing infrastructure planning, land use growth management and setting capital priorities - in collaboration with other ministries and in consultation with municipalities, stakeholders and the public. The Ministry is also responsible for developing strategic realty policy and effectively managing and deploying significant government-owned realty assets. It is responsible for developing and managing effective asset management policies and programs for land use and accommodation, and for infrastructure financing, including alternative financing and procurement (AFP).

The Ministry has legislative responsibility for the Ontario Infrastructure and Lands Corporation. The Ministry also has responsibility for Waterfront Toronto, in partnership with the federal government and the City of Toronto.

A top priority is modernizing public infrastructure to support economic prosperity and to help Ontario communities achieve a high quality of life. In summer 2011, the Ministry released Building Together, Ontario's long-term infrastructure plan, which helps to create and preserve jobs, and supports economic growth.

The Ministry is also responsible for the Places to Grow initiative, and is implementing growth plans in two regions of the province, the Greater Golden Horseshoe and Northern Ontario. The Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2006, has been in place for almost a decade, and a top priority going forward will be the 10-year review of this award winning plan.
