Alberta Infrastructure received two awards at the annual Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) Calgary Excellence Awards. “One of our strongest partners in the BOMA BESt program is Alberta Infrastructure. Not only has Alberta Infrastructure attained the largest number of BOMA BESt buildings with 86 buildings certified or in process, it has committed to enhancing its overall environmental performance by taking many of its buildings from Level I certification to Level 2, 3 and some to Level 4,” said BOMA Calgary President and Chief Staff Officer William Partridge.

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.
Included in the New Building Canada Plan is the federal Gas Tax Fund. Through the new Gas Tax Fund agreement Alberta municipalities will receive $1.08 billion in federal infrastructure funding from 2014-2019. Program details are expected to be rolled out shortly.
Alberta will continue to work with the federal government to clarify the details about the New Building Canada Plan, specifically around the process for submission for our province’s infrastructure priorities in order to meet Albertans’ needs and to maximize the value to all taxpayers. Alberta Infrastructure recommends that any municipality that is seeking funding through the Small Communities Fund component of the New Building Canada Plan ensures that the project aligns with federal eligibility requirements, which can be found by clicking here. Call outs for the Small Communities Fund are not anticipated until early 2015.
We will provide more information as soon as it becomes available. Once we have determined the process for how the funds will be used, the administering Government of Alberta departments will work with stakeholders to administer the Plan. Infrastructure Canada has information about the overall Plan on their website.
