Canada Municipal Water Infrastructure: Utility Strategies & CAPEX Forecasts, 2016-2025

28 October 2016
Data Insight

Municipal water utilities in Canada are on track to spend C$72 billion over the next decade to expand and upgrade its aging network of water pipes and treatment facilities, representing approximately C$2,500 per person. A critical factor in this growth in capital expenditures is a 7% jump in urban population over the next five years.

At the same time, climate change poses a major risk to traditional utility operations, engineering, and design planning. The government’s plan to stay ahead of deteriorating infrastructure will continue to worsen without a shift towards more innovative solutions and business models.

In this Data Insight, Bluefield provides:

  • Bottom Up data including water and wastewater CAPEX plans for Canada’s 13 largest utilities
  • Analysis of infrastructure plans for six Canadian provinces, including methodology and assumptions
  • Ten year forecasts for each water and wastewater infrastructure segment
  • Analysis of demand and market drivers including regional infrastructure, population trends, water conditions and age of networks

Takeaways

  • Canada’s water and wastewater municipal utilities are on track to spend C$72 billion over the next decade, representing approximately C$2,500 bill per person to expand and upgrade its aging network of pipes and treatment facilities.
  • Analysis of thirteen utilities across Canada shows an average annual combined CAPEX of C$3.46 billion from 2016 through 2025
  • Government’s struggle to stay ahead of deteriorating infrastructure will continue to worsen without a shift towards more innovative solutions and business models.
