Gas Tax Fund (GTF) | Infrastructure Canada (INFC)

Value: Varies

Description:

The federal Gas Tax Fund (GTF) was confirmed as part of the federal Budget 2014, and will run from 2014 to 2024. As part of the New Building Canada Plan, the renewed federal GTF provides predictable, long-term, stable funding for Canadian municipalities to help them build and revitalize their local public infrastructure while creating jobs and long-term prosperity. Under the GTF, Alberta will receive $219.1 million in 2016-17, and $1.08 billion from 2014-15 to 2018-19. GTF funding is provided to provinces and territories which in turn flow this funding to municipalities. Municipalities can pool, bank and borrow against this funding, providing significant financial flexibility.
