All Nova Scotian enterprises, be they private, public, social or cultural, begin with basic infrastructure. It's the management of this infrastructure that defines the mandate of the Department of Transportation and Public Works.
Transportation and Public Works is an infrastructure department that:
- provides services, direct or procured, to Nova Scotians and other government departments; - is client-focused; and - is defined by its commitment to cost-effectiveness and quality.
Transportation and Public Works is charged with investing public dollars wisely so all Nova Scotians can benefit, from improvement to public highways and buildings to delivery of procurement services and environmental clean-ups.
Good infrastructure is sound investment. It is an investment in people, in their safety and in their quality of life. Good highways give commuters peace of mind and give industry more reasons to choose Nova Scotia. Good maintenance programs protect buildings that belong to the public.
The department also administers government procurement and supply processes, provides postal services for government and administers industrial parks and malls.
Nova Scotia needs solid infrastructure to build a strong future. The department is working towards fulfilling its commitment to provide the best possible highway and building infrastructure. Transportation and Public Works' full-time and seasonal workforce remains committed to delivering solid service that enhances the safety of all Nova Scotians.
