The Government of Canada is making an historic $180 billion investment in infrastructure through the Investing in Canada plan to build the communities of the 21st century. As part of this plan, the Government of Canada is signing new bilateral agreements with all provinces and territories that will see more than $33 billion in federal investment towards significant infrastructure projects across the country under four priority areas:
- Public transit;
- Green infrastructure;
- Community, culture, and recreation infrastructure; and
- Rural and northern communities.
On April 2, 2018, the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, and the Honourable Claire Trevena, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure for British Columbia, announced the signing of the bilateral agreement between Canada and British Columbia for long-term infrastructure projects. This agreement will provide more than $4.1 billion over the next decade in federal funding under the Investing in Canada plan. The projects supported through this agreement will be cost-shared with the British Columbia government, municipalities and other partners.
