Supporting communities across Alberta
“Our Government is making immediate investments in infrastructure that will play a vital role in helping municipalities and First Nations communities revive their economies, and will improve the lives of Canadians. As a first step, we are accelerating this year’s payment through the federal Gas Tax Fund. In Alberta, this will put $244 million in the hands of 347 communities to improve local infrastructure such as roads and bridges, water and wastewater infrastructure, and recreation centres.”
The Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities
“I’m pleased the federal government is advancing $244 million through the federal Gas Tax Fund for Alberta communities. This is good news for Alberta and supports the work our government is doing to get Albertans back to work and our economy back on track.”
Kaycee Madu, Minister of Municipal Affairs
The federal Gas Tax Fund is a long-term, indexed source of funding for over 3,600 communities across the country. In recent years it has supported thousands of projects annually.
The federal Gas Tax Fund has 18 project eligibility categories, including capacity building, sport infrastructure and roads. Communities can use the funds immediately for priority projects, bank them for later use, pool the dollars with other communities for shared infrastructure projects, or use them to finance major infrastructure expenditures.
