The Cement Association of Canada commended Finance Minister Bill Morneau's Fall Economic Statement for its tangible $81 billion commitment to infrastructure spending.

"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 and 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."

The association also noted the critical importance of infrastructure investments in boosting the competitiveness and growth of the private sector, both of which it says are critical to the continued economic recovery and job creation.
