Graph 1: Departmental Spending Trend Graph

Graph 1 represents Infrastructure Canada's spending and planned spending from 2014-2015 to 2019-2020. The graph highlights the stability and predictability of infrastructure funding provided through the Gas Tax Fund (GTF), with spending at around $2 billion a year.

Over the next few years, infrastructure spending is projected to increase as new programs get implemented. Budget 2016 announced a new 10-year infrastructure plan for public transit, green infrastructure, and social infrastructure. Infrastructure spending is projected to increase to approximately $7 billion in 2017-18 and to $6.9 billion in 2018-19.
