Backgrounder: Every British Columbia community to benefit from federal Gas Tax Fund transfer  

Backgrounder

This month, the Government of Canada delivered the first of two annual $132.97 million federal Gas Tax Fund (GTF) installments to British Columbia. In total, the province will be provided with over $265,940,736 million this year. The funding, which flows through the Union of British Columbia Municipalities to all 189 local governments on a per capita basis, is now available to support community local infrastructure projects. Note that a portion of the annual BC allocation is awarded on an application basis to support strategic priorities across the province.

The following table indicates this year’s federal Gas Tax Fund allocation for British Columbia communities.
