County of Bruce, Ontario

Population (Year): 66491  (2016)

The County of Bruce faces several infrastructure challenges, including aging water and wastewater systems, limited broadband access, and a lack of affordable housing. Many of the water and wastewater systems were built decades ago and are in need of upgrades and repairs to meet current safety and environmental standards. Additionally, many rural areas in the county have limited or no access to high-speed internet, which can impede economic growth and access to services. Finally, the county is experiencing a shortage of affordable housing, which can make it difficult for low-income residents and workers to find suitable housing options.

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.
