Government of Canada Fully Committed to Gordie Howe International Bridge

In September, our government approved the Canadian Transit Company’s application for the proposed Ambassador Bridge enhancement project, subject to conditions.

This means the Canadian Transit Company can proceed with building a new bridge, provided it meets certain conditions. These include dismantling the almost 90-year-old existing Ambassador Bridge and measures to address community and environmental concerns.

Much has been written in reaction to this announcement, specifically with how it relates to the Gordie Howe International Bridge project. We wanted to take the opportunity to offer some clarity.
