The Knowledge Infrastructure Program is an important element of Canada's Economic Action Plan, announced on January 27, 2009. It provides up to $2 billion to support infrastructure enhancement at universities and colleges.
Investments made through the Program will not only generate economic benefits and support job creation, they will enhance research capacity, support the attraction of new students and provide a better educational experience for the highly skilled workers of tomorrow.

March 1, 2012 Final Report
- "Investments in post-secondary infrastructure responded to the need to provide economic stimulus to communities throughout Canada."
- "At the same time, these investments also responded to the need for improved facilities to support the research, development and training capacity of universities and colleges."
- "The information thus gathered, together with the payment schedule, gave the Department increased assurance that projects were being completed as intended and that the federal Knowledge Infrastructure Program would stimulate the economy within the two-year time frame."
- "Another example of speedy implementation was the Knowledge Infrastructure Program, administered by Industry Canada, a cost-shared program to fund infrastructure projects at universities and community colleges."
