Infrastructure Projects Support Jobs, Economy
13 Feb 2021
Together, the governments of Canada and Alberta will provide more than $11.6 million to complete retrofits, repairs and upgrades that will improve the energy efficiency and lifespan of six provincial buildings in Calgary, Edmonton and Wetaskiwin. Funding for these capital maintenance and renewal projects is approved through the COVID-19 Resilience Infrastructure Stream Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP).
“The Government of Canada is taking decisive actions to help create jobs and support our economy. These projects in Calgary, Edmonton and Wetaskiwin will also extend the lifespan of important provincial infrastructure and produce energy efficient cost saving benefits. Canada’s infrastructure plan invests in thousands of projects, creates jobs across the country, and builds cleaner, more inclusive communities.”
Jim Carr, special representative for the Prairies, on behalf of Catherine McKenna, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities
