Funding To Improve Water Quality And Roads In Saskatchewan`s Small Communities

Released on September 11, 2018

46 Projects to Modernize Local Infrastructure Across the Province

The governments of Canada and Saskatchewan recognize that local infrastructure investments are key to economic growth, improving people’s quality of life, and creating good middle-class jobs.

Today, François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, and Government Relations Minister Warren Kaeding, announced more than $53.9 million in joint federal-provincial funding for 46 Saskatchewan projects through the Small Communities Fund.

Funding for these projects will help upgrade and expand water and wastewater systems, and enhance local roads.  The completed work will contribute to building better communities and deliver on local needs.
More than $80.9 million in combined federal, provincial and local recipient funding will be invested in local projects across Saskatchewan.

“Clean drinking water, efficient wastewater treatment and safe roadways are critical to building prosperous and sustainable communities in Saskatchewan and across Canada,” said Champagne.  “The Government of Canada is proud to be supporting these 46 projects that will ensure everyone in the region benefits from solid infrastructure that helps maintain a high quality of life for years to come.”

“The Government of Saskatchewan is proud to be investing more than $26.9 million toward these infrastructure projects across our great province,” Kaeding said.  “Thanks to federal-provincial programs and our municipal partners all working together, projects like these can make investments in core infrastructure go farther.”

Quick facts:
  • The governments of Canada and Saskatchewan will each provide over $26.9 million for the 46 projects, representing approximately two-thirds of the total costs.  The recipients will be responsible for the remaining costs.
  • Of the 46 projects, a combined total of $48,252,136 in federal-provincial funding will go toward the 41 drinking water and wastewater projects, $4,731,082 will go toward the four road projects, and $994,666 will be allocated to a disaster mitigation project.
  • Through the Investing in Canada infrastructure plan, the Government of Canada will invest more than $180 billion over 12 years in public transit projects, green infrastructure, social infrastructure, trade and transportation routes, and Canada’s rural and northern communities.
