Backgrounder: Canada and Ontario announce funding for clean water and wastewater infrastructure projects across Ontario

Backgrounder

18 new projects approved in six communities in Southern Ontario

A new list of water and wastewater projects has been approved under the Canada-Ontario Clean Water and Wastewater Fund (CWWF) agreement, which is designed to improve the safety and quality of water for Canadian families, while supporting a clean economy.

The Government of Canada is providing Ontario with more than $569 million under CWWF, and will fund up to 50 percent of the eligible project costs. The provincial government is providing up to 25 percent of total eligible project costs, and the municipalities will provide the balance of funding.

As part of the bilateral agreement with Ontario, the following 18 projects across Ontario have been approved for federal funding amounting to over $6.1 million in total eligible costs. Additional projects in these and other Ontario municipalities will be identified in the coming weeks.
