Ontario has announced that 78 communities will be receiving support for a variety of projects, including replacement and rehabilitation of water systems, through the Community Infrastructure Fund.
Michael Gravelle, MPP for Thunder Bay-Superior North announced the funding in Dorion Township yesterday where investments will go to a bridge replacement project. The province is investing more than $100 million through the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund (OCIF) Top-Up Application Component for these 78 projects.
“Our government is committed to improving roads, bridges and water infrastructure in rural Ontario,” said Jeff Leal, Ontario Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.
Ontario is also providing more than 420 communities across the province stable and predictable annual formula grants under the program, investing $530 million through the OCIF over the next three years.
