The Government of Canada launches selection process for the Chair of the Canada Infrastructure Bank

OTTAWA, ON, July 3, 2024 /CNW/ – Today, the Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Housing, Infrastructure and Communities, announced that a selection process is underway for the  position of Chair of the Canada Infrastructure Bank (CIB). 

The Government of Canada is seeking applications from qualified, diverse, and talented individuals to fill this position through an open, transparent, and merit-based selection process. Interested candidates are encouraged to apply before the review date of August 6th. The Government is committed to open and transparent processes for selecting Governor in Council appointees, to help strengthen trust in Canada’s democracy and ensure the integrity of its public institutions.

This process encourages applications from individuals with leadership experience at the senior executive level in a private or public sector organization; experience serving on a board of directors; experience at the senior level in a relevant field, such as infrastructure, specifically enabling infrastructure to support housing development, finance, government, public policy or public engagement; and experience with public-private partnerships or complex infrastructure financing.

Enabling strong governance of the CIB by ensuring the CIB’s Board of Directors continues to possess an appropriate mix of diverse skills and experience is consistent with the findings of the Legislative Review of the Canada Infrastructure Bank Act.

The Notice of Appointment Opportunity is published and applications for this opportunity can be submitted through the Government of Canada’s Governor in Council appointments website.


“Finding the right candidate to lead the CIB is a top priority as the Bank continues to invest in projects that are critical to support the growth of our economy and our country. The successful candidate will be instrumental in supporting the federal government’s long-term plan for building transformative infrastructure, creating jobs, fostering economic growth, supporting housing development, and transitioning to a net-zero future.”

The Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Housing, Infrastructure and Communities
