2014 New Building Canada Fund: Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component, National/Regional Projects
Project Business Case Guide for Proposed Projects Identified by Provinces/Territories


The 2014 New Building Canada Fund–Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component–National/Regional Projects (PTIC–NRP) provides funding for projects of national and regional significance, with a focus on projects that support economic growth, a clean environment and stronger communities. Under the PTIC, Provinces and Territories are the Government of Canada's key interlocutors. Projects under PTIC–NRP will be identified by provincial or territorial partners. Only projects identified by a Province or Territory will be assessed under the terms of the PTIC–NRP. As such, eligible recipients are encouraged to contact their respective Provincial or Territorial government if interested in being considered for funding under the PTIC. Provinces and territories are required to prioritize projects for all outstanding NBCF-PTIC funding allocations by April 1, 2018.

In order to ensure these program objectives are achieved, all projects under the PTIC–NRP must be deemed eligible under the PTIC–NRP program terms and conditions, must be supported by a project business case demonstrating how the project meets both the common project criteria, as well as category specific outcomes and project criteria.

The project business case forms the basis of a detailed federal review that will inform a departmental recommendation regarding approval-in-principle of the project. Should your project be approved-in-principle, you will receive a letter from the Minister of Infrastructure and Communities that outlines, among other details, the conditions of federal funding. Notably, eligible project costs can be incurred as of the date of the approval-in-principle letter. Reimbursement of eligible costs is subject to the signing of a project contribution agreement.

This guide has been prepared to assist you in providing Infrastructure Canada with the information required to complete and submit a project business case for departmental officials to undertake the detailed federal review of your project. Once the business case is submitted, Infrastructure Canada officials may seek clarification or additional information.

Please note that only those projects that have been deemed eligible, and for which a provincial or territorial partner has submitted a business case will be reviewed and considered for funding under the PTIC–NRP.
