Investing in Canada Plan funding stream: Social infrastructure

Investing in COVID-19 Community Resilience

On this page


The programs in the Social Infrastructure stream support the provision of adequate and affordable housing and child care, as well as community, cultural and recreational facilities.

Programs from this stream contribute to increased rent-assisted and repaired units, increased access to regulated early learning and child care programs, and increased accessibility to ensure Canadian communities continue to be great places to call home.

Contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)

The Plan's Social Infrastructure programs support the SDG objectives of reducing poverty and inequalities, improving health care, and creating economic growth.
