Bridge repair, water upgrades, and new rec infrastructure for Saskatchewan

Investments in Saskatchewan’s infrastructure during this extraordinary time are providing an opportunity to make several communities more sustainable and resilient, with the announcement of more than $33 million in joint funding for 26 projects.

“The Government of Canada is taking decisive actions to help create jobs and support our economy,” said Jim Carr, Special Representative for the Prairies, on behalf of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Communities.

“These projects in Saskatchewan will provide better access to community amenities such as playgrounds and swimming pools, update sewage systems and provide reliable, efficient water services.”

Key projects include the following:

  • Bridge repair: The Rural Municipality of Porcupine No. 395 and the Rural Municipality of Preeceville No. 334 will see the replacement of rural bridges to strengthen the ability to move goods and services on the local transportation network.
  • Water upgrades: Important upgrades to water and wastewater systems in the Town of Hudson Bay and the Village of Edenwold will help protect the health of residents and the environment.
  • New recreation: A new park and community garden in the Village of Craven. This project – along with improvements to arenas, pools, playgrounds, and community centres across Saskatchewan – will provide residents with access to programs and services, and promote a healthy lifestyle.

Providing communities with reliable and sustainable infrastructure is a shared priority for both governments. To that end, the Government of Canada is investing more than $21 million in these projects through the Investing in Canada plan. The Government of Saskatchewan is contributing over $12 million. Contributions by recipients toward their respective projects are more than $12 million. In total, this represents a combined infrastructure investment of more than $46 million.

“Our provincial government is proud to play a role in these infrastructure initiatives by investing more than $12 million that will help them move from the drawing board to reality. These projects improve the rural transportation system, water and recreation facilities, create jobs, improve quality of life and strengthen Saskatchewan,” said Don McMorris, Saskatchewan’s Minister of Government Relations.
