Today, 54% of the world’s population lives in cities. Both in Canada and across the world, we are witnessing urbanisation on an unprecedented scale. Each city comes with its own set of complexities, however, across the board, one major challenge facing the vast number of urban areas stands out: transforming their ageing infrastructure.

The infrastructure engineers who live and work in these growing metropolises must lay the foundations for infrastructure that can adapt over time, in parallel with our changing lifestyles. Cities must be created to be resilient and continue to provide opportunities for employment while offering comfortable living. There is a pressing need to dramatically reduce the energy and water use of established cities and the amount of waste they produce, but there are many political and economic barriers to the substantial changes that are required. Cities are where future economic growth will be concentrated – but that growth must be decoupled from negative environmental and social impacts.

With over 50 years of infrastructure engineering experience through working with city managers and developers, WSP’s infrastructure team has the technical expertise to deliver infrastructure on par with the world’s best. Our local teams work in their communities, while benefitting from WSP infrastructure expertise from around the globe.
