On behalf of Finance Minister Joe Oliver, the Honourable Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages and Member of Parliament for Saint Boniface, today announced a P3 Canada Fund investment towards the Capital Integration Project (CIP) in Winnipeg.

The project includes the Southwest Transitway (Stage 2) and the Pembina Highway Underpass project. Through the P3 Canada Fund, the federal government will contribute up to $137.3 million to the Southwest Transitway (Stage 2) component of the project, while the Province of Manitoba and the City of Winnipeg will each contribute $225 million.
