Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Grants for Municipalities

The Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program was developed to help municipalities invest in infrastructure upgrades and expansion initiatives. The program is available to municipal governments and aboriginal communities across the country.

CIP 150 provides up to 50-75% of eligible infrastructure project expenses, however program funding has already been depleted in some Canadian regions and may no longer accept new applications.

If you’re a municipality seeking government funding to support infrastructure projects, other options may be available to offset a portion of project expenses. Please contact Mentor Works to discuss alternate infrastructure funding programs.
