Residents of Sault Ste. Marie will soon benefit from federal Gas Tax Fund investments in local infrastructure that will help grow the middle class, create a healthy community for our children and promote sustainable development and long-term prosperity for Canadian families.
“Modern and up-to-date community infrastructure helps connect people to jobs and provides access to better community services, attracts new businesses and creates economic growth. The Government of Canada knows communities are best positioned to identify their specific needs and the federal Gas Tax fund supports them in making those strategic investments.” said, Terry Sheehan, Member of Parliament for Sault Ste. Marie
This year, Sault Ste. Marie will receive $4,569,051 in indexed annual funding through the federal Gas Tax Fund for municipal infrastructure like local roads, sports and recreation facilities and tourism infrastructure. The projects generate economic growth and create jobs to ensure that Northern Ontario remains among the best places in the world to live.
Whether the federal Gas Tax Fund is invested to keep our roads safe and smooth, to support our public transit system or to improve residents’ access to clean drinking water, it has made a difference in our community, namely through improving the conditions of roads.
The Government of Canada is proud to deliver predictable, long-term funding to help municipalities build the Canada of the 21st century and ensure a high quality of life for generations to come.
