Natural Infrastructure and Prairie Prosperity
14 November 2023
The natural infrastructure sector contributes billions to the Prairie-wide economy and creates jobs. In 2022, the sector's direct contribution to the GDP of the Canadian Prairies was estimated to be CAD 4.1 billion, and it directly employed over 33,000 people in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. We need greater investment in this sector, which is required to treat and supply clean, fresh water to the millions who live in Canada's Prairies.
