OTTAWA — The federal government has announced it is seeking nominees to serve on the International Authority for the Gordie Howe International Bridge project.
The authority is a joint Canada-Michigan governance entity responsible for overseeing compliance with the Crossing Agreement signed by Canada and Michigan for the bridge project, noted a recent statement.
The government notice said it is looking for “applicants who have a significant leadership background at the senior executive level, experience with Canada-U.S. bi-national initiatives, and a proven ability to foster strong relationships.”
Applications can be submitted through the Government of Canada’s Governor in Council Appointments website.
The Gordie Howe International Bridge project between Windsor, Ont. and Detroit is being delivered through a public-private partnership by the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority (WDBA), a Canadian Crown corporation. The WDBA is responsible for overseeing and managing the construction and operation of the new crossing.
Construction on the bridge project started in 2018 and is scheduled to be completed in 2024.
