Backgrounder : Canada and Manitoba announce new funding for projects in small communities

Backgrounder

The governments of Canada and Manitoba are funding 42 infrastructure projects in communities across the province under the New Building Canada Plan’s Small Communities Fund, including 17 green infrastructure projects, 14 cultural and recreational projects and eight trade & transportation-related projects. The Government of Canada and the Government of Manitoba are each contributing over $10 million, representing two-thirds of the estimated $34.6 million in eligible project costs.

This is in addition to 49 projects previously approved under the Small Communities Fund in Manitoba.

The Small Communities Fund supports priority public infrastructure projects in communities with fewer than 100,000 residents across Canada.
