Infrastructure upgrades boost economy, support jobs
2 Jun 2021
The governments of Canada and Alberta are injecting more than $31.9 million to complete crucial repairs and upgrades to seniors and family housing throughout the province. In Calgary and Edmonton, this includes upgrades to ventilation, air conditioning, heating, security and fire systems. Housing in other communities, such as Fort Chipewyan, Hinton, Okotoks, Olds, Spruce Grove and Wetaskiwin, will receive nursing call systems, roofing and accessibility upgrades.
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 investing nearly $25.6 million with the Alberta government providing nearly $6.4 million.
