Canada and Saskatchewan Invest $40 Million in Infrastructure to Build Stronger Communities

Released on November 14, 2022

Today, Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities, and Don McMorris, Saskatchewan’s Minister of Government Relations, announced more than $40 million in joint funding for 9 infrastructure projects across Saskatchewan.

The City of Martensville, just north of Saskatoon, will benefit from the construction of a new community recreation facility. The centre will feature one regulation-size ice surface with spectator seating, a leisure ice surface with skate change area, as well as several other indoor areas, including an artificial turf facility, rock climbing wall and playground. The facility will also include multipurpose rooms available to the public, change rooms, washrooms and concession areas.

Southeast of Prince Albert, Muskoday First Nation will build a new centre that will showcase cultural events, ceremonies, workshops, language classes, history, art, dance, land-based learning and memorials.

Several rural areas will also see important infrastructure improvements. This includes bridge replacement to support the transportation system in the rural municipalities of Meota No. 468, Miry Creek No. 229 and Mount Pleasant No. 2, along with the decommissioning of a landfill in Mankota No. 45 to help protect the environment.

By investing in infrastructure, the Government of Canada is growing our country’s economy, increasing the resiliency of our communities, and improving the lives of Canadians.

“Infrastructure investments help create healthy, connected, and resilient communities. Once these projects are completed, residents of Martensville will be able to stay active in a new multipurpose facility, and residents of Muskoday First Nation will have a dedicated space to promote and transmit their cultural traditions. Working with our partners, our Government will continue to support rural and Indigenous communities across Saskatchewan," Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities Minister Dominic LeBlanc said.

"The Government of Saskatchewan is proud to invest more than $17.7 million toward these shovel ready infrastructure projects, which will increase recreation and cultural opportunities, protect the environment and enhance the transportation system,” McMorris said. “These local infrastructure investments will continue to strengthen our communities and benefit Saskatchewan citizens for years to come."
