Backgrounder: Canada and Ontario invest more than $115.1M in municipal infrastructure to respond to the impacts of COVID-19 in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area

Joint federal and provincial funding through the Investing in Canada Plan will support 30 municipalities throughout the Greater Toronto, Hamilton Area (GTHA).

The Government of Canada is investing more than $92.1 million towards these projects through the COVID-19 Resilience Stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. The Government of Ontario is contributing more than $23 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. The Ontario government will invest 20% of the eligible costs for projects across the province.

The majority of funding will support the rehabilitation of active transit infrastructure, the development of modern and accessible recreational options, and upgrades and replacement of equipment in health and emergency facilities in communities across the GTHA. Additional investments will support increased options for active transportation, and the renovation of municipal buildings, community centres and cultural facilities. These improvements will provide safe and inclusive spaces for residents across the GTHA.
