244 More MEEP Projects Approved

Released on July 29, 2020

Today, Government Relations Minister Lori Carr announced that another 244 projects, representing more than $88.9 million of provincial funding through the Municipal Economic Enhancement Program (MEEP) 2020 has now been approved.  This brings the current number of approved projects to 741 and an investment to date of $127 million.

“MEEP is a key component of our government’s economic ‘booster shot,’ in light of these recent unparalleled times due to the pandemic,” Carr said.  “These provincial dollars will kick start ‘shovel-ready’ local projects and initiatives to support job creation and help keep Saskatchewan strong.”

Some of the recently-approved projects include:

  • City of Regina, $30.9 million for: Roof Replacement, Residential Road Renewal, Energy Monitoring and Optimization Infrastructure, Outdoor Rink, Wascana Pool, Municipal Justice Building, New Sidewalks, Sidewalk Conversion to Multi-Use Pathway and Pavement Markings
  • City of Saskatoon, $35.5 million for: City-Wide Paved Roadways Preservation, Downtown Festival Site, Roadside Safety Improvements, Neighbourhood Traffic Safety Upgrades and City-Wide Sidewalk Rehabilitation
  • City of Swift Current, $2.3 million for: Fairview Arena Floor and Header Replacement and Friesen Street Storm Line Rehabilitation
  • City of Yorkton, $2.3 million for: Roadway Rehabilitation, Water Main Replacement Program, and Broadway St. East Revitalization

Announced in May, the $150 million MEEP is a key component of the Government of Saskatchewan’s $7.5 billion, two-year capital plan to build a strong province and stimulate its economic recovery from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Municipalities are reminded to submit potential projects under the program by July 31, 2020.

MEEP 2020 funding must be used by municipalities by March 31, 2022.
