Supporting communities across Prince Edward Island
“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 partnership with Prince Edward Island, this will put $16.5 million in the hands of 63 communities to improve local infrastructure like drinking water systems, high-speed broadband, and recreation centres.”
The Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities
“We have identified important projects in communities across the Island, and our rural municipalities need help now more than ever. We continue to work closely with the federal government, and know that these immediate support measures will help us get shovels in the ground.”
The Honourable Steven Myers, Minister of Transportation, Infrastructure and Energy
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 also 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.
