Saskatchewan is accelerating $56.9 million in infrastructure funding to municipalities as a lead-in to the 2010 construction season, part of $100 million that Saskatchewan’s Ministry of Municipal Affairs is providing this year to municipalities for infrastructure projects.

Projects approved under the Building Canada Fund – Communities Component will receive $42.5 million of the accelerated funding. Safe drinking water, wastewater, recreation, local road and bridge improvements are among the project categories targeted to communities with populations of less than 100,000.

In addition, there will be $13 million accelerated this year to Provincial Territorial Base funded projects (PT Base) and $1.4 million for Building Canada Fund – MajorInfrastructure Component (BCF-MIC) funded projects.
