The Small Communities Fund will support 46 infrastructure projects across Saskatchewan, the majority of which are focused on water and wastewater systems.

Announced by François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, and the Warren Kaeding, Minister of Government Relations, more than $53.9 million in joint federal-provincial funding will be made available for water, wastewater, and road projects.

“Clean drinking water, efficient wastewater treatment and safe roadways are critical to building prosperous and sustainable communities in Saskatchewan and across Canada,” said Minister Champagne. “The Government of Canada is proud to be supporting these 46 projects that will ensure everyone in the region benefits from solid infrastructure that helps maintain a high quality of life for years to come.”

The funding will help upgrade and expand water and wastewater systems. Canada and Saskatchewan will each provide over $26.9 million for the projects, representing approximately two-thirds of the total costs. The recipients will be responsible for the remaining costs.

Of the 46 projects, a combined total of $48,252,136 in federal-provincial funding will go toward the 41 drinking water and wastewater projects

“The Government of Saskatchewan is proud to be investing more than $26.9 million toward these infrastructure projects across our great province,” said Minister Kaeding. “Thanks to federal-provincial programs and our municipal partners all working together, projects like these can make investments in core infrastructure go farther.”
