Communities Submit Your ICIP Project Proposals

Released on September 18, 2020

COVID-19 and Green Landfill Decommissioning Infrastructure Streams Open

Today, Saskatchewan municipalities and other eligible organizations can begin submitting detailed applications for projects under the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP), which will help protect the environment, stimulate the economy and strengthen communities in light of the pandemic.

“We encourage eligible applicants to submit their proposed projects as soon as possible so shovels can be put in the ground, infrastructure initiatives can move forward, jobs can be created, and our province can continue to grow as strong as the resilient people who call this great place home,” Government Relations Minister Lori Carr said.  “Eligible project proposals from earlier intakes can also be resubmitted for reconsideration.”

COVID-19 Resilience Stream

A new one-time COVID-19 Resilience Infrastructure Stream (CVRIS) will accept project applications until the close of the business day on Friday, October 30, 2020.  Proposed projects must start no later than September 30, 2021.

Projects must be completed by the end of 2021 or 2022, depending on the size and location of the community where it’s occurring.  Projects must have a minimum total eligible cost of $100,000 to a maximum of $10 million.

CVRIS’ four funding categories are:

  • Retrofits, repairs and upgrades for various types of buildings.
  • COVID-19 response infrastructure, including measures to support physical distancing.
  • Active transportation infrastructure, including parks, trails, foot bridges, bike lanes and multi-use paths.
  • Disaster mitigation and climate adaptation infrastructure.

Green Infrastructure Stream - Landfill Decommissioning Projects

The Green Infrastructure Stream will accept project applications to decommission landfills.  This aligns with the province’s Solid Waste Management Strategy.  Proper decommissioning is the final step in the life cycle of a landfill and it’s a critical one to ensure that the surrounding environment remains protected.  Project applications will be accepted until funding for this specific initiative is fully allocated.  Projects must be completed by March 31, 2027.

Unsuccessful applicants from earlier intakes are encouraged to resubmit projects, if eligible, for consideration under this intake.
Eligible recipients which can begin applying online today for this intake under both of these streams include: municipalities; First Nations and Métis communities and related governing bodies; public sector bodies; not-for-profit organizations; and for-profit organizations, providing they are working with Indigenous entities and/or municipalities.

The full eligibility requirements for these ICIP streams and the online application process are available at  These applications will be managed by the Ministry of Government Relations.

Under ICIP, the Government of Saskatchewan secured more than $896 million in federal funding over 10 years to support all types of eligible infrastructure projects in the province.
