Backgrounder: Canada and Saskatchewan invest in 24 infrastructure projects across the province

Canada and Saskatchewan invest in 24 infrastructure projects across the province

Joint federal, provincial, and project proponent funding through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program will support 24 projects that will decommission landfills and replace bridges across Saskatchewan.

The Government of Canada is making a total investment of over $5.5 million to help improve infrastructure in communities across the province. More than $5.1 million is provided through the Green Infrastructure Stream and the Rural and Northern Communities Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program, and a further $405,655 will support four projects under the Canada Community-Building Fund.

The Government of Saskatchewan is investing over $5.6 million in these projects. Proponents are providing a contribution of over $5.7 million, and are responsible for any additional project costs.
