2014 New Building Canada Fund: Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component


Varies. Generally speaking, projects will be federally cost-shared on a one-third basis.


The $10-billion Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component (PTIC) provides funding to support infrastructure projects of national, regional and local significance that contribute to objectives related to economic growth, a clean environment and stronger communities. To support a wide range of infrastructure needs, the PTIC is divided into two sub-components:

  • National and Regional Projects (PTICNRP): includes $9 billion for projects that are nationally and regionally significant, and are predominantly medium- and large scale in nature; and
  • Small Communities Fund (PTICSCF): $1 billion for projects in communities with fewer than 100,000 residents through the Small Communities Fund (PTICSCF). The PTICSCF ensures that small communities can benefit from significant funding supporting economic prosperity.

Eligible Applicants
