The governments of Canada and Ontario are working together to make long-term infrastructure investments to create economic growth, build inclusive communities and support a low carbon, green economy – leading to a higher quality of life for all Canadians.
On March 14th, the Hon. Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, and Bob Chiarelli, Ontario Minister of Infrastructure announced the signing of an agreement that will provide more than $11.8 billion in federal funding over the next decade dedicated to infrastructure projects under the Investing in Canada plan. The projects supported through this agreement will have a total value of over $31 billion, and will be cost-shared with the Ontario government, municipalities and other partners.
The Government of Canada is making unprecedented investments towards infrastructure across Ontario while also providing the flexibility for communities to identify their priorities and projects.
Under this agreement, the federal government will provide $4.89 billion to the City of Toronto – matched by the Province of Ontario – to build vital new urban transit networks and service extensions that will transform the way Canadians live, move and work.
These investments will make a positive difference in communities, resulting in the better movement of people and goods, providing clean air and water, and enabling smarter and more efficient cities.
