Today, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, Catherine McKenna and Canadian Infrastructure Bank Chair Tamara Vrooman announced a new, $3 billion per-year permanent transit fund, beginning in 2026-27. In total, the announcement commits $14.9 billion in new funding for public transit projects, over the next eight years.
Starting this year, $5.9 billion of this funding will be made available for shovel-ready projects.
Infrastructure Canada will consult stakeholders, including provinces, territories, municipalities, local governments, Indigenous communities, transit agencies, and policy experts to develop qualifying criteria for this funding.
Let Sussex help connect you with the right people in government to ensure your voice is heard as funding criteria is developed and this program is rolled out.
