We are always grateful when the Province of Ontario and our Federal Government provide infrastructure funding,” said Councillor John Gray, Chair of the Finance Committee.
The Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program is a cost-shared infrastructure funding program between the federal government, provinces and territories, and municipalities. This program will see up to $30 billion in combined federal, provincial and other partner funding under four priority areas, including Community, Culture and Recreation.
The Community, Culture and Recreation stream will support community infrastructure priorities across the province, improving access to and / or quality of community, cultural, and recreation priority infrastructure projects.
