Canada is one of the world leaders in public-private partnerships (P3s). And with a new federal government committed to building infrastructure, P3s will no doubt be on the rise for the foreseeable future. If you are a lawyer or government or business executive working in infrastructure development, now is the time to enhance your mastery of the design, delivery and maintenance of P3s, as well as their complexities and pitfalls.
Led by program directors Marni Dicker and Richard H. Shaban, an expert, multi-disciplinary faculty with years of experience working with all levels of government will give you valuable insights into what makes P3s work — and fail. Why are there concerns in some quarters about the efficacy of P3s? What are the key characteristics of successful P3s? How can you avoid the common missteps that plague unsuccessful projects?
You will also learn about the nuts and bolts from start to finish — considerations when deciding whether a project is suitable for a P3, through financing of the project and the role of debt and equity, and finally to operating, maintaining and managing the P3 project. Hear from the key players, including senior government and industry executives, in a variety of engaging sessions including lively panels at the end of each day of the certificate. And of course, there will be extensive opportunity for introductions, questions and discussion between sessions.
