The investments are expected to create 60 thousand jobs while contributing to the fight against climate change.

The bank will invest $1.5 billion in agricultural infrastructure in Western Canada, $2.5 billion in clean power projects and $1.5 billion to buy zero-emission buses.

Another $2 billion will be spent to expand access to high-speed Internet service across the country.
