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, which continues the previous Building Canada Fund, includes an investment of about $942 million into Alberta infrastructure priorities.

The provincial government, led by Alberta Infrastructure, is working with the federal government to clarify the details about the New Building Canada Plan, specifically around process for submission for our province’s infrastructure priorities to meet Albertans’ needs and to maximize the value to all taxpayers.

We will provide more information as soon as it becomes available. Once we have determined the process for how the funds will be used, each Government of Alberta department will work with its stakeholders to administer the Plan. Infrastructure Canada has information about the overall Plan on their website at http://www.infrastructure.gc.ca/plan/plan-eng.html
