In Metrolinx Canada, Bruce McCuaig is departing as president and CEO of to take on a new federal role in the Privy Council Office as executive adviser (Infrastructure Bank), effective April 24. He will support the launch of the Canada Infrastructure Bank, an initiative that will initially be funded with $26 billion from the government.
“Bruce’s decision is a big loss for Metrolinx but an equally big win for Canada’s ambitions to finance and build infrastructure nationally for the 21st century,” says J. Robert Prichard, chair of the Metrolinx board. “When he arrived at Metrolinx in 2010, he took the helm of an organization in its early days with a mandate to build a fully integrated organization able to deliver on our mission to champion, develop and implement an integrated transportation plan for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.”
Prior to joining Metrolinx, McCuaig was deputy minister of the Ontario Ministry of Transportation.
