Government of Canada announces funding for ten community buildings across Saskatchewan

Through the Green and Inclusive Community Building (GICB) program, the Government of Canada is investing over $68 million towards ten projects in Saskatchewan to support retrofits to existing community buildings as well as the construction of new community buildings. All projects are intended to make community infrastructure more energy efficient and accessible. Applicants are contributing over $19.4 million to these projects.

Seven of the projects announced today are funded through GICB’s scheduled intake stream for large building retrofit projects or new community building projects, with total eligible costs ranging from $3 million to $25 million. The three remaining projects are funded through GICB’s rolling intake for small and medium retrofit projects, ranging in total eligible cost from $100,000 to $3 million.
