Member of Parliament for Provencher Ted Falk announced that the first installment of the federal Gas Tax Fund for 2015 is being made available to support municipal infrastructure in Provencher. The announcement was made on behalf of the Honourable Denis Lebel, Minister of Infrastructure, Communities, and Intergovernmental Affairs and Minister of the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec.

“The Government of Canada is committed to investing in public infrastructure to enhance our economic productivity and create jobs and economic growth across Canada,” said Falk. “Through the federal Gas Tax Fund, the federal government is demonstrating its ongoing commitment by providing stable, predictable funding to all municipalities, so that Canadian communities can address their local infrastructure priorities. The first payment for 2015 will support infrastructure projects in Provencher.”

The federal Gas Tax Fund assists municipalities by providing funding for local infrastructure projects. In 2015-2016, over $5.5 million will be made available to the 25 municipalities in Provencher.
