City of Halifax, Nova Scotia

Population (Year): 431479  (2017)

The City of Halifax faces several infrastructure challenges that impact the daily lives of its residents. One of the main issues is the need to maintain and upgrade aging roads, bridges, and transportation systems to ensure safe and efficient travel. Additionally, the city’s water and sewer systems require significant investment to ensure reliable and efficient service. The city also faces challenges related to affordable housing and homelessness, which require investment in social services and infrastructure. Finally, the city must address the impacts of climate change, including extreme weather events and sea-level rise, on critical infrastructure, including roads, buildings, and communication networks. Overall, addressing these infrastructure challenges requires significant investment in the city’s transportation, water, housing, and emergency management systems to ensure long-term sustainability and resilience.

How to Read a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) for Business Development?

When a city, municipality or state issues a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP),  it can be overwhelming and daunting, but there are a few key things you need to investigate. Let’s start with the definition of CIP – A Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) contains all the individual capital projects, equipment purchases, and major studies for a local government; in conjunction with construction and completion schedules, and in consort with financing plans. The plan provides a working blueprint for sustaining and improving the community’s infrastructures. It coordinates strategic planning, financial capacity, and physical development. A CIP stands at the epicenter of a government’s Planning, Public Works, and Finance departments. When a CIP is issued, it typically includes the following information:

  1. A listing of the capital projects or equipment to be purchased
  2. The projects ranked in order of preference
  3. The plan for financing the projects
  4. A timetable for the construction or completion of the project
  5. Justification for the project
  6. Explanation of expenses for the project

Now, for business development, while the capital plan is interesting, the capital program is for capital expenditures that extends five to ten years beyond the capital budget.  Knowing the difference is important so you can influence upcoming program versus just responding to an RFP.
