Minister Sohi announces update on the Investing in Canada Plan
On April 19th, the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, was joined by Kelly Gillis, Deputy Minister of Infrastructure Canada, to provide an update on the Government’s progress in implementing the Investing in Canada long-term infrastructure plan.
The presentation outlined how the Government of Canada is rolling out the Plan in two phases, making funding available to address needs identified through broad consultations, and delivering on its commitment to make unprecedented investments in infrastructure across the country.
The Government’s long-term infrastructure plan was announced in Budget 2016 and further expanded on in Budget 2017 to support five priority areas: public transit, green infrastructure, social infrastructure, trade and transportation, and rural and northern communities. In total, it is making over $180 billion available to support local, provincial, and territorial infrastructure projects over 12 years.
