"Canada Infrastructure Report Q3 2015" is now available at Fast Market Research

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.

Canada's construction sector recorded overall growth of 0.69% in 2014, broadly in line with our expectations for industry expansion over the year. Although the fall in global oil prices is weighing heavily on oil sector investment, we do expect to see overall growth in the Canadian infrastructure value in 2015, due primarily to an uptick in residential construction and a considerable road, rail and renewables project pipeline. Overall, however, our outlook for infrastructure investment remains subdued, with limited annual growth expected throughout the forecast period.

Key Forecasts and Developments Include:

* Delays to controversial pipeline projects continue, with TransCanada's Energy East Pipeline recently delayed by a year, while the preferred oil export terminal site was scrapped due to environmental concerns.
* The rail segment remains strongest within the transport infrastructure sector, with growth of 5.8% forecast for 2015; projects such as the proposed high-speed rail line between the cities of Windsor and Toronto at a cost of CAD2.5bn (USD2.01bn) indicate long-term growth potential.
* Residential construction is off to a strong start in 2015, with a considerable increase in multi unit permits issued as well as new building starts. Although some regions are seeing a slight housing market downturn, such as Alberta, demand for new construction remains high in key areas such as Ontario and Quebec.
* Overall, Canada's infrastructure is expected to expand by 1.5% in 2015 and by, on average, just under 2% between 2016 and 2024.
