Backgrounder: Canada and Ontario invest in clean water and wastewater infrastructure projects across Ontario


Ten new projects approved in seven communities

New water and wastewater projects have 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 over $569 million under CWWF (up to 50 per cent of the eligible project costs). The provincial government is providing up to $270 million (up to 25 per cent of total eligible project costs). The recipients will provide the balance of funding. More than 1,300 water and wastewater projects are improving the quality of life of residents in more than 470 communities under CWWF.

As part of the Government of Canada’s long-term plan, more than $2.8 billion will be invested in green infrastructure projects throughout Ontario.

The following 10 projects across Ontario have been approved for federal funding totaling $4,349,912 and for provincial funding totaling $2,174,956.
