City Awarded $2.5 Million in Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Funding

I am very pleased to announce that the City will receive over $2.5 million in Government of Canada funding for 28 infrastructure rehabilitation projects in Mississauga through Intake 2 of the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program (CIP 150).
The CIP 150 approved City projects under intake 2 include the rehabilitation of five trails, 17 playgrounds, one facility renovation and five specific renovation projects. The federal program celebrates Canada’s 150th anniversary, under the theme Giving Back to Canada. The objective of the program is to strengthen public infrastructure and provide economic benefits in communities across Canada.  The Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program helps municipalities undertake much-needed renovations and improvements to aging infrastructure.
In total, the 28 infrastructure rehabilitation projects will cost over $5 million, which includes over $2.5 million CIP 150 funding.  Projects must be completed by March 31, 2018.
The rehabilitation of 14 trails and nine playgrounds along with two specific renovation projects at Lake Aquitaine Park and Riverwood Park with up to $2.1 million in funding was previously approved through Intake 1 of the CIP 150 program.
I am also very pleased to report that 6 infrastructure projects will be completed in Ward 11 as part of the CIP program intake 1 and 2.  The projects are budgeted at approximately $890,000 and will receive approximately $400,000 in CIP funding.  The Ward 11 projects are as follows:
