Building stronger communities across Manitoba with the federal Gas Tax Fund


Doubling of the federal Gas Tax Fund delivers infrastructure funding boost for 136 communities 

WINNIPEG, Jan. 19, 2020 /CNW/ - Modern public infrastructure is key to promoting economic growth and developing healthy sustainable communities. This is why the Government of Canada is renewing its commitment to communities through the federal Gas Tax Fund. 

The Government of Canada has delivered two $36.2-million federal Gas Tax Fund (GTF) installments to Manitoba for the 2019?20 fiscal year. This is in addition to a top-up of $72 million made available through Budget 2019.

The federal GTF is a long-term, indexed, predictable source of funding that supports a diverse range of projects. In Manitoba, residents of the RM of Brokenhead are getting active and enjoying new outdoor fitness equipment adjacent to the Garson Quarry Park thanks to the funding. The Rural Municipality of Fisher is prioritizing waste management by expanding the Poplarfield Disposal Site landfill. The City of Portage la Prairie is investing in a multi-year project to construct the Crescent Lake causeway, which will consist of a new three-lane causeway, active transportation pathways and two roundabouts to improve traffic flow and driver safety.

These are just a few examples of how the federal Gas Tax Fund is helping address local priorities and build the resilient, 21st-century infrastructure residents deserve across Manitoba.

Quotes

Modern infrastructure is making Manitoba communities even better places to live. Through the Gas Tax Fund, we're delivering stable long-term funding so that communities can pursue projects that truly benefit local residents. Whether it means helping build recreation centres and public transit systems, upgrade water services, increase energy efficiencies, and much more, we're working together to build cleaner, healthier, more sustainable communities for our children and grandchildren."

The Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities

"Through the use of the Gas Tax Fund, our Government delivers support for projects of local and regional significance with municipalities all across Manitoba. Strategic investments in community infrastructure provide economic growth and improve quality of life for Manitoba communities.  I am proud of our partnership with the federal government to provide municipalities with a fair say on how infrastructure funds are invested in their communities."

The Honourable Reg Helwer, Minister of Central Services
