New projects will ease congestion, bring faster commutes and more time with friends and family across the GTHA.
Starting July 22, 11 municipalities across the GTHA can apply for funding to support new transit projects through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program Public Transit Stream. These projects, including the five transit projects nominated in Toronto and York Region in May could unlock up to $12.45 billion in federal and provincial funding.
The eligible municipalities that can apply for funding are Brampton, Burlington, Durham Region, Halton Hills, Hamilton, Milton, Mississauga, Oakville, Peel Region, Toronto and York Region.
“People in Ontario count on infrastructure to get to work, shop and get home to their families,” said Laurie Scott, Minister of Infrastructure. “Our government’s investments in the GTHA will make public transit infrastructure better, safer and more accessible.”
The Province will continue to work with the federal government, and ask that it further increase funding towards priority transit projects.
Applications for funding is now open to 11 municipalities across the GTHA, and will close on October 24, 2019.
