Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program

on .

Canada and Saskatchewan signed the bilateral agreement for the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) in October 2018. More than $896 million of federal ICIP funding available for all types of eligible Saskatchewan projects is divided into four investment streams:

  • Public Transit Infrastructure Stream – $307.9 million
    Funds will help build:
    • new urban transit networks and service extensions; and
    • upgrade existing systems to improve the way that citizens live, move and work.
  • Green Infrastructure Stream – $416.3 million
    Funds will help:
    • support greenhouse gas emission (GHG) reductions;
    • enable greater adaptation and resilience to the impacts of climate change and climate-related disaster mitigation;
    • ensure that more communities can provide clean air and safe drinking water for their citizens; and
    • decrease the release of pollutants into the environment.
  • Community, Culture and Recreation Infrastructure Stream – $56.2 million
    Funds will help:
    • build stronger communities; and
    • improve social inclusion.
  • Rural and Northern Communities Infrastructure Stream – $115.9 million
    Funds will support projects that improve the quality of life in rural and northern communities by responding to rural- and northern-specific needs.

How to Apply:
Saskatchewan is implementing the following two-stage process to: 1) gather information about the current infrastructure demand in our province and further develop program criteria; and 2) to plan and prepare for a full, more detailed application intake.

EOIs accepted from Friday, March 15, 2019 until 4:30 p.m. CST on Tuesday, April 30, 2019.

The EOI requests information about your project’s priority, planning and outcomes. Although this is a short timeline, applicants that have active asset management plans should be well-positioned to provide the required basic information in the simplified form.

Submit an EOI for all projects that you consider a priority and that you would be prepared to start in the next five years (2019-2024). There is no limit on the number of EOIs that you can submit. However, you must submit a separate EOI for each project and you will be asked to prioritize your project submissions. Participation in the EOI is strongly recommended and will be a consideration in the rating and assessment of full, more detailed ICIP applications (see Stage 2).

Please note: the EOI is NOT an application for funding. However, based on the EOI information received, some projects may be identified to complete a detailed application for immediate funding consideration.
