Building Canada Plan

On March 28, 2014 the Government of Canada released information about their New Building Canada Plan to the provinces and territories. The New Building Canada Plan (NBCP) will provide about $942 million in infrastructure funding to Alberta over the next 10 years.  

Included in the New Building Canada Plan is the federal Gas Tax Fund, which will provide $1.08 billion in federal infrastructure funding from 2014-2019 to Alberta municipalities. The Government of Alberta finalized negotiations with the federal government on the Gas Tax Fund in July 2014.  This funding program is administered by Municipal Affairs, more information can be found on their website.  

The Government of Alberta is now working towards prioritizing projects under the Provincial/Territorial Infrastructure Component – National and Regional Projects of the New Building Canada Fund. Funding from this agreement will contribute to existing projects in Alberta’s Capital Plan in order to provide the best value for Alberta taxpayers and municipalities. 

Call outs for submissions under the Provincial/Territorial Infrastructure Component – Small Communities Fund are open. The deadline for applications is April 2, 2015.

For further information on the Small Communities Fund application please visit or call Alberta Municipal Affairs at 780-427-2225, toll free in Alberta by first dialing 310-0000.
