Ministry of Infrastructure | Investing in Community, Culture and Recreational Projects

 Laurie Scott, Minister of Infrastructure announced that the province is now accepting funding applications for projects under the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program’s (ICIP) Community, Culture and Recreation (CCR) stream. The funding will go towards investing in community, culture and recreational projects that will help deliver vital services for communities, foster greater social inclusion and improve the quality of life for residents across the province.

“Community centres, cultural facilities and recreational infrastructure are exactly the types of investments that make a difference in the daily lives of people across Ontario,” said Scott. “We are making the investments that matter to our communities.”

This program is funded by the federal and provincial governments along with eligible partners such as municipalities, Indigenous communities and not-for-profit groups, and could unlock up to $320 million in provincial funding.

“These infrastructure investments are in addition to funding commitments that the Ontario government has already made for rural and northern infrastructure and transit infrastructure projects,” added Scott. “We are committed to making the right investments in the right places at the right time.”

Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program: Community, Culture and Recreation guidelines and application materials are available for eligible partners on the Transfer Payment Ontario website.
