As we face the greatest public health crisis of our time, our Government is taking strong and quick action to protect the health and safety of all Canadians, stabilize our economy, and support communities across Canada. Our Government understands the challenging situation that cities and towns are in.
The government is making an immediate investment in our communities by speeding up this year’s funding delivered through the Federal Gas Tax Fund. We are delivering over $2 billion from the Gas Tax Fund to municipalities – earlier than usual to help them weather the economic consequences of the pandemic.
Our Government is continuing to have important conversations with provinces and territories about this pressing issue, and we are speaking with mayors from across the country, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, as well as transit authorities.
Making an immediate investment in infrastructure will play a critical role in restarting local economies, allowing Canadians to return to work when it is safe to do so, and improving our quality of life in the months and years ahead
