The Government of Canada has launched open, transparent and merit-based selection processes to identify the Bank’s senior leadership with the goal of having the Canada Infrastructure Bank operational in late 2017, subject to Parliamentary approval. Through these processes, the government will first select a chairperson of the board, followed by the board of directors and chief executive officer.

The selection processes are designed to attract highly qualified individuals, while taking into consideration the desire to achieve gender parity and to reflect Canada’s linguistic, cultural, and regional diversity. Applications for each of these opportunities can be submitted through the Government of Canada’s Governor in Council Appointments website.

“We are excited to be taking this next step towards the creation of the Bank,” Amarjeet Sohi, minister of infrastructure and communities. “We will be looking for talented and experienced leaders from across the country to ensure that the Bank meets its mandate: build more infrastructure for Canadians that will create growth and equip our communities for a more sustainable and productive future.”

The Government of Canada also announced that the Bank will be located in Toronto, which has established a global reputation for excellence as a centre for infrastructure financing. The Bank will be set up to be able to finance infrastructure in all parts of Canada.
