Two municipalities in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean Region, Saint Félix d’Otis and L’Anse Saint Jean, will share $532,273 under the federal-provincial gas tax agreement. The communities will receive a total of $665,339 for water infrastructure work, including construction of a water reservoir, preparation of an action plan for the renewal of water and wastewater pipes, and replacement of water and sewer mains.

The goal of the Canada-Quebec agreement is to provide funding for the renewal of municipal and local infrastructure, and specifically for municipal drinking water, wastewater, local roads and public transit infrastructure, within a context of sustainable development. From 2005 to 2010, Quebec will receive $1.151 billion from the Gas Tax Fund, in addition to the Government of Quebec’s contribution of $475.7 million.
