Building Together: Municipal Infrastructure Strategy

Building Together: Municipal Infrastructure Strategy

Municipal infrastructure is essential to delivering services to Ontarians. That's why the province launched the Municipal Infrastructure Strategy in 2012.

A cornerstone of the strategy is a requirement for long-term asset management planning by municipalities. Municipalities seeking provincial capital funding are required to submit a detailed asset management plan.

The province has made nearly $200 million available under the broad umbrella of the Municipal Infrastructure Strategy.

The Small, Rural & Northern Municipal Infrastructure Fundincludes $71 million in capital funding available for municipalities through a two-stage application process.  The first stage of the application process closed on November 1, 2013.

Prior to that, the province allocated $114 million available to complete critical capital infrastructure projects. This funding was allocated to 110 municipalities. 

In addition, Ontario has allocated a total of $12.25 million to help assist smaller municipalities to complete asset management plans.
