From refurbishing aging SkyTrain vehicles in Vancouver, to building a new recreational centre in North Battleford, to transforming abandoned rail lines into scenic trails in Fredericton, projects funded through the Gas Tax Fund are creating jobs, improving the infrastructure backbone of our communities and enhancing the lives of all Canadians.
The money from the Gas Tax Fund is put towards a variety of projects that contribute to cleaner air and water and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Many of the projects involve improvements to roads. Improved infrastructure maintains the vibrancy of Canadian communities, sustains and creates good jobs, and gives solid support for economic growth.
The Gas Tax Fund is helping to build Canada's communities by providing permanent funding in support of municipal infrastructure that supports economic growth and strong cities and communities. Building on the success of past years, all communities across the country will continue to benefit from this now permanent source of funding. Municipalities can use the flexibility and predictability of the Gas Tax Fund to borrow against future allocations to effectively invest in their long-term infrastructure priorities.
The federal Gas Tax Fund is a key infrastructure program and part of the new Building Canada Fund as announced in Economic Action Plan 2013. Funding for the Gas Tax Fund is now legislated and over the next 10 years will provide $21.8 billion dollars to assist municipalities with their infrastructure needs.
