Funding Delivered under the Investing in Canada Plan

Through the Investing in Canada plan, the Government of Canada is investing over $180 billion over 12 years in infrastructure projects across Canada. These investments are being made by 21 federal departments and agencies.

Through Budget 2016, the first phase of the Plan made $14.4 billion in new funding available for the repair and modernization of key infrastructure. This funding has gone towards vital public transit systems, clean water and wastewater systems, and social infrastructure such as affordable housing. Building on the first phase of the Plan, $81.2 billion in additional funding was made available in Budget 2017 to support five priority areas over the next decade: public transit, green, social, trade and transportation, and rural and northern communities' infrastructure and provides predictable funding and focusses on large-scale transformational projects. For further details on each of the funding programs, see the Implementation Progress and Funding Update Table below.

In addition, over $92 billion is available through Government of Canada's existing programs - programs that pre-date the Investing in Canada plan. For example, the federal Canada Community-Building Fund supports approximately 4,000 infrastructure projects in 3,600 communities across the country each year; the New Building Canada Fund will provide $11.8B in funding for new and ongoing projects; and other government departments and agencies will continue to make investments in core infrastructure across the country.

Footnote xxiii

This program, formerly called Gas Tax Fund, is an ongoing and flexible source of funding for municipalities; while other Infrastructure programs are application-based programs, the Canada Community-Building Fund ensures that all municipalities have access to a stable and predictable source of fund for their infrastructure needs. It can be used immediately for priority projects, banked for later use, or pooled with other communities for shared infrastructure projects. The Government of Canada does not approve individual projects funded by the Canada Community-Building Fund. Through the Canada Community-Building Fund agreements with provinces and territories funding is provided to recipients and ultimate recipients who select projects, and who in turn inform Infrastructure Canada through annual reports. Based on past annual reports, an average of 4,000 projects are funded through the federal Canada Community-Building Fund each year (starting in 2016-2017).
