OGRA Heads Up: Federal and Provincial Governments Commit $88 Million to Local Infrastructure Projects

The provincial and federal governments have announced funding for 35 municipal and First Nation projects in communities across Ontario under the New Building Canada Plan's Small Communities Fund (SCF).

Both the Government of Ontario and the Government of Canada have each committed more than $44 million to the projects, which have a total eligible cost of more than $141 million. The remainder will be cost-shared by the recipient communities, through the Small Communities Fund, which supports priority infrastructure projects in communities across the country that have less than 100,000 residents.

Please visit the Government of Canada’s website for a list of the 35 infrastructure projects that will move forward immediately.

“OGRA is pleased that the Federal and Provincial Governments are working together to help fund much-needed projects at the municipal and First Nation level,” said OGRA Executive Director Joe Tiernay.

The mandate of the Ontario Good Roads Association is to represent the transportation and public works interests of municipalities through advocacy, consultation, training and the delivery of identified services.
