The Government of Canada is investing a historic $180 billion in infrastructure through the Investing in Canada Plan to build 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 funding go towards infrastructure projects across the country in four priority areas:
- Public transit;
- Green infrastructure;
- Community, culture, and recreation infrastructure; and
- Rural and northern communities.
On October 3, 2018, the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, and the Honourable Gordon Wyant, Minister Responsible for SaskBuilds, announced the signing of the long-term infrastructure funding agreement between Canada and Saskatchewan. This agreement will provide communities in the province with more than $896 million over the next decade. The projects supported through this agreement will be cost-shared with the Saskatchewan government, municipalities and other partners.
