Building And Protecting Communities Through Strong Municipal Investments

Released on April 6, 2021

$465.2 Million Provided to Municipalities in 2021-22 Provincial Budget

The 2021-22 provincial budget released today includes more than $465 million in direct support to Saskatchewan's municipalities.  This investment will support communities as they continue to recover from the economic impacts of the pandemic, with a strong focus on local infrastructure.

The 2021-22 municipal investment includes more than $275 million in Municipal Revenue Sharing, the second highest amount on record.  Since 2007, the Municipal Revenue Sharing Program has seen a 118 per cent increase in no-strings attached, predictable funding to Saskatchewan municipalities.

"Our government will continue to support and protect local economies from the economic impacts of COVID-19 through smart investments in the municipal sector," Government Relations Minister Don McMorris said.  "Together, we will continue to build a strong and resilient Saskatchewan by investing in roads, highways, bridges, schools, clean water facilities, hospitals, and much more.  These kinds of projects strengthen our economy, create local jobs and will help return life to normal as we recover from the pandemic."

The Government of Saskatchewan's investment in municipalities includes a continuation of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program, with more than $56 million in provincial funding dedicated for municipal infrastructure projects.  This represents a significant increase from the $21.4 million in the 2020-21 provincial budget.

In addition, the federal-provincial New Building Canada Fund will continue to support critical infrastructure work in municipalities, with the Government of Saskatchewan providing $46.9 million in the coming fiscal year.

Additional key municipal investments include:

  • $36.8 million for urban and rural road projects;
  • $19 million for policing grants;
  • $11.3 million for provincial libraries;
  • $3.8 million for the Transit Assistance for People with Disabilities Program; and
  • $1.7 million for the Community Rink Affordability Grant.
