Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate this year's Canadian Consulting Engineering Awards winners, who have been recognized by the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies of Canada. ACEC represents more than 500 companies in all regions of Canada that provide professional engineering services to both public and private sector clients.
All parties in the House support infrastructure investments as key to Canada's economic and social well-being. The federal government has a vital role to play in the development of a long-term infrastructure plan for Canada when the Building Canada fund expires in less than two years.
This year's recipients represent the full spectrum of infrastructure projects and demonstrate the entire range of expertise present in Canada today.
Together with all parties, I congratulate all winners of this year's Canadian Consulting Engineering Awards.
