Investing in our infrastructure

June 5, 2024 – Fort Nelson, British Columbia – Public Services and Procurement Canada

Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) is committed to protecting the safety of Canadians through ongoing investments in its infrastructure.

Today, the Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Public Services and Procurement, announced the Government of Canada has awarded a contract worth over $13.5 million (excluding taxes) to Peters Brothers Construction Ltd. for an asphalt overlay project on the Alaska Highway.  

The contract involves repairing 61 kilometres of asphalt road surface by grinding existing asphalt, removing deficient pavement and applying an asphalt coating. The work will take place between km 390 and km 451 of the Alaska Highway, near Fort Nelson, British Columbia (BC). This investment will improve the condition and safety of the aging asphalt and extend the service life of the road surface. 

The competitive procurement process for this project also includes an important Indigenous subcontracting component of more than 20% of the contract value, which aims to provide social-economic benefits to Indigenous People and Indigenous firms of the region.
