The sustainable development approach is part of the mission of the Corporation to ensure the safety and longevity of the major infrastructure under its responsibility.
The sustainable development strategy has eight themes and four development criteria. The Corporation has initiated an exercise to follow recognized best practices in sustainable development.
Infrastructure under the Corporation’s responsibility is part of the daily life of the users, residents and communities it serves. To guide its strategic initiatives and programs, the Corporation takes great care to maintain an open dialogue with its different stakeholders and create a relationship of trust.
