Better water infrastructure for Thunder Bay residents

221 new projects approved in 86 communities

THUNDER BAY, ON, May 24, 2017 /CNW/ - The governments of Canada and Ontario are committed to investing in local infrastructure that ensures Canadians and their families have access to modern, reliable water and wastewater services that meet their needs. These investments safeguard the health and well-being of residents, protect waterways and preserve local ecosystems, while also laying the foundation for new economic opportunities to strengthen the middle class across the province.

The Honourable Patty Hadju, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour, and Member of Parliament for Thunder Bay-Superior North, on behalf of the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, Bill Mauro, Member of Provincial Parliament for Thunder Bay-Atikokan, on behalf of the Honourable Bob Chiarelli, Ontario Minister of Infrastructure, and His Worship Keith Hobbs, Mayor of Thunder Bay, today announced that 34 new projects in Thunder Bay have been approved under the Government of Canada's Clean Water and Wastewater Fund. The federal government is providing up to 50 per cent of funding for these projects—over $5.5 million. The provincial government is providing up to 25 per cent of funding for these projects—just over $2.7 million of total eligible costs, and the City of Thunder Bay will provide the balance of funding.

Thanks to this investment, residents of Thunder Bay will benefit from city-wide stormwater infrastructure inventory assessment, as well as design and construction of 16 storm water management facilities. The region will also benefit from the construction of new stormsewers and outfalls to improve stormwater passage and capacity. These projects are essential to keeping our waterways clean and our communities healthy and livable.

In addition to these projects, over $13.6 million in federal funding for 187 water and wastewater projects will benefit 85 other communities across Ontario.

This investment is part of an agreement between Canada and Ontario for the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund.
