GOVERNMENT INVESTING IN MUNICIPAL INFRASTRUCTURE

The government is increasing support for infrastructure projects across the province as part of the single largest provincial investment in municipal infrastructure in decades.The province is adding $70 million to the Municipal Capital Growth Program that will fund a number of municipal infrastructure projects such as the development of new housing units, the replacement and extension of water and wastewater pipe, flood mitigation and new or improved sidewalks.

The Municipal Capital Growth Program is a one-time program that was launched in the fall with an initial investment of $32 million. It supports critical municipal infrastructure related to a range of issues, including housing, climate change, accessibility and community growth.

The program will fund up to 50 per cent of costs for eligible projects. Priority will be given to applications that help communities address critical capacity issues, expand their services, build more accessible and adaptable communities, and restore contaminated land to allow for future development.“Municipalities are key partners in helping grow our province. We understand the unique challenges they face, and we know the investment today will make a difference for many communities,” said Municipal Affairs and Housing Minister John Lohr. “This is a historic investment and one I am extremely proud to make to ensure eligible municipalities from one end of the province to the other have the support they need to complete projects that will help them grow their communities and build for the future.”

The Province will release details of specific projects in communities as municipalities are notified.
