Public Private Partnerships (P3)

Construction project with bright blue skies.

Osler’s team of specialist P3/AFP professionals advise on a broad spectrum of projects funded and implemented using public-private partnership structures. Our breadth of experience and wealth of long-standing industry relationships give our clients a tangible advantage as we advise on each stage of a project.

Regardless of size of project, industry or jurisdiction, our team is positioned to understand the issues that all parties face and the effect that these issues will have on the success of a project. Osler’s exposure to the most complex P3 projects, the experience of a number of our team members as practising professional engineers and our expertise in project finance, infrastructure, construction, health care and power allow us to quickly assess our clients’ needs and deliver practical, commercial advice in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. This ability to tailor our services to the specific needs of our clients is enhanced by our ability to work collaboratively between offices and areas of specialty, providing our clients with seamless service from our offices across Canada.
