CDPQ Infra

An innovative model for infrastucture projets

The model

Launched in July 2015, the model allows CDPQ Infra to act as the owner-operator of certain infrastructure projects while assuming responsibility for the planning and financing phases, execution and operation.

An exclusive subsidiary of Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, CDPQ Infra will generate commercial returns for la Caisse and its partners while limiting the financial impact of infrastructure projects on the government’s balance sheet.


Reseau Electrique Metropolitain

The réseau électrique métropolitain (REM) project will link downtown Montreal, the South Shore, the West Island (Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue), the North Shore (Deux-Montagnes) and the airport in a unified, fully automated, 67-km LRT system comprising 27 stations and operating 20 hours a day, 7 days a week.
