P3, or public-private partnership, is a term that has been used in the media, by politicians, labour groups, public officials and industry. While there is often coverage on P3s, this coverage sometimes indicates a lack of understanding as to what a P3 is, why governments choose to use them and how they work.  The presentation will, from an Alberta government context, define a P3; explain the P3 value proposition, including the role of private financing and the impact of risk transfer, and present best practices that the Province of Alberta has developed. The presentation will also cover common criticisms of P3s, such as the higher cost of private financing versus government financing, and the reasons P3s are still a valid approach for some projects.
