National Post special section highlights Saskatchewan P3 Summit speakers, identifies Sask as emerging P3 leader
A special section released by the National Post recently shone a light on Public-Private Partnerships (or P3s), and strongly indicated that Saskatchewan is a force to be reckoned with in the area of P3 leadership.
The section, which can be found at www.infrastructurecanada.ca, was created with input from P3 Summit speakers Mark Romoff, Rupen Pandya, Olivia MacAngus, and Owen D. Pawson. One article in particular puts focus on Saskatchewan as a P3 leader: www.infrastructurecanada.ca/p3s/saskatchewan-an-emerging-p3-leader.
Delegates to the Summit (register today by clicking the banner above) can access hard copies of the edition at the event itself.
