Whether it is unlocking capital, expertise or project management, the private sector has become a significant contributor to public projects in Canada, from infrastructure to service delivery. National news outlet the Globe and Mail, in partnership with Cities Changing Diabetes Canada, will present a half-day hybrid event on 8 May to showcase some of Canada’s most impactful public-private partnerships (P3s) and the social impacts they deliver.
