The governments of Canada and Ontario announced more than $15 million in investments for 99 municipalities across Northern Ontario.

The Government of Canada is investing over $12 million in Northern Ontario municipalities through the COVID-19 Resilience Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada plan. The Government of Ontario is contributing more than $3 million.

The majority of funding will support the rehabilitation of water and wastewater infrastructure, repairs to municipal public works buildings and fire halls. Additional investments will support upgrades to parks, recreational facilities and active transportation networks of multi-use paths and trails for residents across Northern Ontario.

“Thanks to this funding, we will be able to advance construction of our Waterfront Trail and renew four other multiuse trails in the City. These upgrades will be a welcome investment, facilitating active lifestyles, increased connectivity, and expanded active transportation in our community,” said Thunder Bay Mayor Bill Mauro.

In the City of Thunder Bay, the network of multi-use trails will be widened and rehabilitated with new gravel, better drainage, and wayfinding signage, making it safer and more enjoyable for residents. The addition of new rest areas with benches will also provide better opportunities to take in the scenery and enjoy the outdoors.

“This investment of $12 million will help our communities continue to move forward as we recover from the pandemic,” stated Patty Hajdu, Minister of Health and MP for Thunder Bay-Superior North.

“We are supporting local infrastructure projects in Northern Ontario that protect people’s health and well being while contributing to the province’s economic recovery this year and for many years to come,” added Stephen Crawford, parliamentary assistant to Ontario’s Minister of Infrastructure.
