Backgrounder: Northwest Territories’ 2019‒20 federal Gas Tax Fund allocations

The Government of Canada has delivered the first of two $8.25 million federal Gas Tax Fund (GTF) installments to the Northwest Territories for the 2019-20 fiscal year.

In addition to the regular installments, communities in the Northwest Territories 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 the Northwest Territories with a total of $33 million this fiscal year for local infrastructure projects.

The following table indicates the 2019-20 federal GTF allocation and Budget 2019 top-up amount for the Northwest Territories' communities.1

[1] Amounts exclude territorial administrative costs.
