As a Crown corporation, the Canada Infrastructure Bank operates at arm’s length from government and is governed by an independent, professional Board of Directors.
The Government of Canada sets the overall policy direction and high-level investment priorities of the Bank. The Bank works cooperatively with all levels of government and private investors to identify potential projects, and makes independent commercial decisions on whether these projects are bankable and how to structure project financing.
The Canada Infrastructure Bank is accountable to Parliament through the Minister of Infrastructure and Communities. For more information, see the Infrastructure Canada website.
