Backgrounder: Canada and Ontario invest $15M in municipal infrastructure to respond to the impacts of COVID-19 in Northern Ontario

Joint federal and provincial funding through the Investing in Canada Plan will support 99 municipalities throughout Northern Ontario.

The Government of Canada is investing more than $12 million towards these projects through the COVID-19 Resilience Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. The Government of Ontario is contributing more than $3 million to the projects.

The COVID-19 Resilience Infrastructure Stream, implemented in response to the pandemic, allows the Government of Canada to invest up to 80% of eligible costs for projects in provinces, and up to 100% for projects in territories and Indigenous communities.

This funding will support the rehabilitation of water and wastewater infrastructure, repairs to municipal public works buildings and fire halls. Additional investments will support upgrades to parks, recreational facilities and active transportation networks of multi-use paths and trails for residents across Northern Ontario.
