Canada and Saskatchewan announce investments in rural bridge and culvert projects

The Government of Canada is investing $621,201 in five projects under the Rural and Northern Communities Infrastructure Stream (RNIS) of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program, as well as a further $250,036 to one of the projects under the Canada Community-Building Fund (CCBF), for a combined total investment of $871,237. For projects requiring consultation with Indigenous groups, funding is conditional on all consultation requirements being met.

The Government of Saskatchewan is contributing over $1.2 million toward these five projects. Contributions by recipients toward their respective projects total more than $1.6 million.

In total, this represents a combined infrastructure investment of more than $3.7 million. Funding recipients are responsible for any additional project costs.
