Federal Gas Tax Fund Allocation Table

The federal Gas Tax Fund provides all municipalities across the country with a permanent, stable and indexed source of infrastructure funding. It was made permanent in 2011 at $2 billion per year, and is indexed at 2 per cent per year, starting in 2014-15, with increases to be applied in $100-million increments from 2014-15 to 2023-24. This represents $21.8 billion in flexible, long term funding for municipal infrastructure.

The federal Gas Tax Fund is allocated on a per-capita basis for provinces, territories and First Nations, but provides a base funding amount of 0.75 per cent of total annual funding for Prince Edward Island and each territory. This funding will be administered through renewed bilateral agreements outlining the terms and conditions for the use of the federal Gas Tax Fund.
