The Gold Award for Service Delivery

Canada Line

The Canada Line P3 Rapid Transit project in Vancouver "continues to be a superlative success story after eight years of operation," stated the CCPPP Awards Committee. Initially delivered ahead of schedule and on budget for the 2010 Olympics, its usage level is far ahead of expectations, system service delivery performance meets and exceeds requirements and it has been a major catalyst of economic activity in the region.

Gold Award for Infrastructure

Iqaluit International Airport

The CCPPP Awards Committee noted this project is "an outstanding demonstration of how vital infrastructure in Northern Canada can be successfully delivered in public-private partnership."

The awards committee lauded the extensive and effective community engagement and the resulting incorporation of unique local considerations in the planning, design, construction and operations of this airport facility, including the reflection of cultural values.

"The Iqaluit International Airport Project has excelled due to the hard work and dedication of the project team. We are honoured by this recognition. The partnership between ourselves and the Government of Nunavut has enabled us to deliver this complicated infrastructure project on-time and on budget," said John Wood, Arctic Infrastructure Limited Partnership CEO.

Silver Award for Infrastructure

Calgary Composting Facility

In addition to being the first such facility to be delivered under the P3 model in Canada, the Calgary Composting Facility is also the largest of its kind in North America.

The CCPPP Awards Committee noted, "The DBFOM (Design, Build, Finance, Operate and Maintain) delivery model and solution adopted is directly relevant to many Canadian municipalities seeking environmentally friendly and sustainable treatment of food and yard waste while reducing pressure on landfill facilities."

"This project demonstrated to the private and public sectors that the P3 model can be applied successfully to environmental infrastructure projects resulting in a facility that will benefit the City of Calgary and the community at large for their current requirements as well as allowing for future growth and expansion," said Harold Reinders, Chinook Management General Partnership.

Silver Award for Project Development

The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health

The CCPPP Awards Committee noted that the Toronto CAMH project excelled in its extensive plans to integrate new buildings with the surrounding community to create a more inclusive environment.

In addition, the committee members noted "the project required an enhanced contractual and risk allocation structure as a result of directly interfacing with existing CAMH facilities and with a P3 Project Company involved with an earlier phase of development."

Silver Award for Project Development

City of Saint John, N.B., Safe, Clean Drinking Water Project

The CCPPP Awards Committee said the City of Saint John, N.B., Safe, Clean Drinking Water Project is a perfect example of applying a P3 procurement model to allow municipal governments to replace aging critical water infrastructure in their cities and towns in a more timely, integrated and comprehensive manner.

The committee took particular note of "the approach that Saint John took with this project to customize P3 concepts to address complex greenfield and brownfield developments that other municipalities can use as a model to modernize water treatment and distribution systems to ensure they deliver a safe and quality product to their citizens."
