Feds infrastructure commitment re-affirmed

The federal government confirmed its commitment to municipal infrastructure during a recent meeting with the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) board of directors.

Denis Lebel, minister of Infrastructure, Communities, and Intergovernmental Affairs, confirmed that the outstanding parameters for the $53 billion New Building Canada Plan are currently under development and will be announced as soon as possible to ensure project proposals can be considered in 2014.

He highlighted that two-thirds of the new funding under the New Building Canada Plan is dedicated exclusively to municipalities.

New agreements were sent to the provinces and territories on Nov. 5 and Lebel said he is looking forward to signing them so municipalities can continue to benefit from the program. Lebel reiterated that while work is underway for the new programs, existing programs continue to provide significant funding to infrastructure projects across Canada. There is $6 billion under existing programs that will continue to flow to projects across the country this year and beyond.
