Backgrounder: Canada and British Columbia announce new water and wastewater projects

Backgrounder

The governments of Canada and British Columbia have approved a new list of projects under the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund (CWWF), which supports the rehabilitation of community drinking water and wastewater infrastructure and the planning and design of future systems that meet drinking water and wastewater effluent standards.

The Government of Canada allocated $225,067,721 to British Columbia under the CWWF and will fund up to 50 per cent of the eligible project costs. The Government of British Columbia will provide up to $148.5 million and will fund 33 per cent of the eligible project costs. With local governments providing the remainder, a combined total of $450 million will provide B.C. families with clean and reliable drinking water and wastewater services.

As part of the bilateral agreement between Canada and British Columbia, the following 144 projects have now been approved for federal funding amounting to more than $186.6 million. Combined with provincial funding of nearly $123.2 million and local government contributions of over $63.4 million, more than $373.2 million will be going toward projects across the province.

These projects are in addition to the 35 CWWF projects announced on September 30, 2016 as part of the signing of the Canada-British Columbia bilateral agreement.
