The Cement Association of Canada has applauded the Fall Economic Statement Finance Minister, Bill Morneau, for its tangible CAN$81 billion commitment to infrastructure spending.

The CAC took the opportunity to highlight the critical importance of infrastructure investments in boosting the competitiveness and growth of the private sector, both of which are critical to continued economic recovery and job creation.

"With billions of additional dollars in infrastructure spending now firmly on the table, the Fall Economic Update attests to the government's commitment to supporting growth through economic stimulus and investments in critical infrastructure," said Michael McSweeney, President & Chief Executive Officer of the Cement Association of Canada. "We welcome the opportunity to collaborate in the development of criteria to govern these infrastructure investments so that the economic, social and environmental potential of Canada's infrastructure plan will be met."
