Local municipalities receive federal and provincial infrastructure funding

Municipalities in Bruce and Grey will split $1,913,042 in federal and provincial infrastructure funds, with $382,608.40 from the province.

Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MPP Bill Walker says it’s an investment in critical local infrastructure needs that will help as we continue to recover from COVID-19.

The total federal investment is $1,530,433.60.

In all the federal and provincial governments have teamed up to announce a total investment of $51.2 million to support infrastructure in communities across Ontario to help protect the health of residents, create jobs and promote economic recovery.

This investment is being made through the COVID-19 Resilience Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program, a cost-shared, application-based infrastructure funding opportunity.
