Assessing the Record of Public-Private Partnerships

Reports and Studies by Sylvia Fuller

On May 29, 2002, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives’ (CCPA) BC Office co-sponsored a public forum on the topic of public-private partnerships (P3s). Sylvia Fuller’s report summarizes the proceedings of that forum. Fuller points out that P3s have become increasingly popular in Canada and elsewhere and that promoting public-private partnerships is now a key focus of the BC government. The CCPA thought it important to subject these arrangements to critical scrutiny, and to promote broader public awareness of them.

The CCPA brought together experts from places with a longer history of public-private partnerships to speak about what P3s in education, health, corrections, and other areas have meant for citizens. To that end, this report contains the notes and presentations of presenters from as far away as Edinburgh. The CCPA contends the information contained in these presentations is of high value to policy-makers and the general public.
