Most Canadians can take for granted conveniences and services far above levels considered acceptable even a few decades ago. This quality of life was made possible in part by the development of modern, complex, large-scale public works infrastructures. It represents a remarkable achievement. Climate, terrain, and limitations in resources and technological capabilities challenged generations of pioneers, soldiers, labourers, and engineers. Despite formidable difficulties, they built the essential edifices for everyday life: railways and urban transit systems, bridges and roads, sewers and waterworks, utilities and flood control works, airports and canals, electrical utilities and public buildings. Building Canada tells the story of the public works that helped to transform Canada from wilderness to a modern country. For the first time, a single volume describes Canadian history in terms of its public works. Each chapter includes highlights and examples of standard practice, along with a wealth of illustrations. Members of the Canadian Public Works Association have sponsored this volume in recognition of the accomplishments of their predecessors and the achievements of their profession.
