Funding Delivered under the Investing in Canada Plan

Through the Investing in Canada plan, the Government of Canada is investing over $180 billion over 12 years in infrastructure projects across Canada. These investments are being made by 21 federal departments and agencies.

Through Budget 2016, the first phase of the Plan made $14.4 billion in new funding available for the repair and modernization of key infrastructure. This funding has gone towards vital public transit systems, clean water and wastewater systems, and social infrastructure such as affordable housing. Building on the first phase of the Plan, $81.2 billion in additional funding was made available in Budget 2017 to support five priority areas over the next decade: public transit, green, social, trade and transportation, and rural and northern communities' infrastructure and provides predictable funding and focusses on large-scale transformational projects. For further details on each of the funding programs, see the Implementation Progress and Funding Update Table below.

In addition, over $92 billion is available through Government of Canada's existing programs. For example, the federal Gas Tax Fund supports approximately 4,000 infrastructure projects in 3,600 communities across the country each year; the New Building Canada Fund will provide $11.8B in funding for new and ongoing projects; and other government departments and agencies will continue to make investments in core infrastructure across the country.
