Mississauga Receives Provincial and Federal Funding for Transit Infrastructure  

I am very pleased to announce that the Ministry of Infrastructure and Communities, and the Ministry of Infrastructure, announced over $800 million in funding for Mississauga’s transit infrastructure.
Mississauga will receive $338,998,744 from the Government of Canada and $279,673,964 from the Government of Ontario over the next 10 years. The City will contribute $228,824,152, for a total of $847,496,860. The money will be used to fund the City’s plans for future expansion and maintenance of its transit infrastructure.
The funding is part of a bi-lateral agreement through the Investing in Canada plan, providing more than $11.8 billion over the next decade in federal funding dedicated to infrastructure projects. The projects supported through this agreement will have a total value of over $31 billion and will be cost-shared with the Ontario government, municipalities and other partners.
This is a much needed funding that will help the City advance plans for public transit in Mississauga. The support of the federal and provincial governments is imperative to connecting our city, increasing transit capacity and building sustainable infrastructure.
