Investing in Canada plan funding stream: Rural and Northern Communities infrastructure

Investing in COVID-19 Community Resilience

Investments in rural and northern infrastructure will help grow local economies, build stronger, more inclusive communities, and help safeguard the environment and the health of Canadians.

Because rural and northern communities have unique infrastructure needs that require a more targeted approach, the Government will invest $2 billion over the next decade to support a broad range of infrastructure projects, to be allocated to provinces and territories on a base plus per capita allocation basis. In addition, the $400 million Arctic Energy Fund will be delivered under this stream to support energy security in the territories.
