MPP Ross Romano Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund

SAULT STE MARIE, ONTARIO   January 26, 2020  (LSN)   Ross Romano, MPP for Sault Ste. Marie, was joined by Mayor Christian Provenzano to announce that the Sault will receive more than $2 million to address their local community infrastructure needs.

The Ontario government is making another investment in small, rural and northern communities. Through the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund (OCIF), Ontario continues to support municipalities as they build and repair roads, bridges, water and wastewater infrastructure. 

This funding is a part of Ontario’s approximately $200 million commitment to 424 communities addressing their core infrastructure projects and asset management planning needs in 2020.  
 
“This investment provides the predictable and stable infrastructure funding small, rural and northern municipalities have asked for,” said Laurie Scott, Minister of Infrastructure. “With this OCIF funding we are working directly with our municipal partners to deliver community infrastructure.”  
 
“I want to recognize the Provincial Government for its support,” said Mayor Provenzano. “As the City continues to make quality of life investments in our community, this funding will contribute to improvements of local infrastructure and help us better serve our residents.” 
Recognizing that municipalities have different infrastructure needs, the province uses a straightforward and transparent formula that examines various social and economic factors to determine funding allocations across the province.
