Gas Tax Fund Signage Requirements

Signage is part of your Municipal Gas Tax Fund Agreement and helps people recognize federal Gas Tax Fund (GTF) investments in your community.

Usually signs are in place 30 days before construction starts, and remain until 30 days after your infrastructure project is completed. The cost of signs manufactured and installed according to Infrastructure Canada’s (INFC) guidelines are an eligible project cost.

1. Guidelines

INFC created guidelines for sign design, content and installation for projects funded by the GTF.

Canada takes a flexible, common sense approach to signs. Project managers can choose the right type, size and nature of signage based on their specific project(s).

Physical Signs
The use and size of physical signs should be based on the project’s scope and size, duration and cost. In general, a sign for a project funded by the GTF is required:

  • when the federal contribution is over $100,000;
  • where there is visible construction; and
  • where an installed sign is visible to the public.

In some cases, an interior sign placed in a lobby or a sign installed in a community gathering place may be a good alternative to an outdoor sign.

Digital Signs
In some cases, you can use a digital sign (either on your project’s website or in social media) to recognize your project. You can also use digital signs with physical signs if you wish.

2. Reporting

Each year, Saskatchewan submits a report to Canada about the signs installed for infrastructure projects using federal Gas Tax Funds. Once you are ready to display your physical or digital sign to the public, please email gastaxprogram@gov.sk.ca so we can record that you have fulfilled this requirement of your agreement. Include a photograph and/or digital link to your sign.
