Backgrounder: British Columbia’s 2019‒20 federal Gas Tax Fund allocations

Backgrounder

The Government of Canada has delivered the first of two $140.2 million federal Gas Tax Fund (GTF) installments to British Columbia for the 2019-20 fiscal year.
In addition to the regular installments, B.C. communities will benefit this year from a top-up to their funding, as announced in Budget 2019. This top-up will accelerate progress and maximize every opportunity to ensure that Canadians in every community across the country continue to see real and timely results in the renewal of public infrastructure.
The GTF will provide British Columbia with a total of $559 million this fiscal year for local infrastructure projects and will be allocated to the Greater Vancouver Regional Fund ($278 million), the Strategic Priorities Fund ($61 million) and the Community Works Fund ($219.5 million).
The following table indicates the 2019-20 federal GTF allocations and Budget 2019 top-up amount for B.C’s Community Works Fund recipients.1
