Torys is delighted to announce that two projects our Infrastructure practice advised on have been honoured at the Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnership’s 2020 National Awards—which celebrate innovation and excellence in public-private partnerships.
Established in 1998, the CCPPP National Awards celebrate governments and/or public institutions and their private sector partners who have shown excellence and innovation—in the areas of project financing, service delivery, infrastructure investment and/or generation of economic benefit—in public-private partnerships.
Torys advised on two out of the five projects honoured at this year’s awards.
Torys acted as counsel to Regina Bypass Partners (Connor Clark & Lunn GVest/Gracorp Capital/Parsons Enterprises/VINCI Concessions) as the successful proponent for the C$1.88 billion Regina Bypass PPP project to design, build, finance, operate and maintain a new highway around Regina, Saskatchewan. This is the province’s first transportation project undertaken as a public-private partnership.
Torys acted for the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Western Regional Health Authority as the public authorities for the C$750 million Corner Brook Acute Care Hospital PPP project to design, build, finance and maintain a new acute care hospital in Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador. This new seven-story, 600,000 square-foot hospital will connect to the newly constructed 145-bed Corner Brook Long-term Care Facility on the same site.
This project was also named North America Social Infrastructure Deal of the Year 2019 by IJGlobal.
