The Small Communities Fund is part of the $10-billion
Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component of the New Building Canada
Fund, said a news release from the federal government. The fund will provide $1
billion to municipalities with fewer than 100,000 residents for priority public
infrastructure projects that deliver on local needs.

 

The six projects in the southeast region benefiting from the
funding are:

  • Phase 1 of the Underground Water and Wastewater
    Infrastructure Renewal in the City of Steinbach
  • Upgrade to the Drinking Water Infrastructure in the Rural
    Municipality of Ritchot
  • Recycling Depots in the Rural Municipality of Piney
  • Lagoon Expansion in the Rural Municipality of La Broquerie
  • Sewage Lift Station and Forcemain Upgrade in the Rural
    Municipality of Springfield
  • Wastewater Lift Station in the Town of Ste. Anne

These projects will help these small southeast Manitoba
communities improve their water, wastewater and solid waste management
infrastructure. When completed, the systems will better meet the needs of their
residents today and into the future, said the release.

 

The projects are among a number of projects announced
recently across the province that will benefit from funding from the
governments of Canada and Manitoba under the Small Communities Fund. The
governments of Canada and Manitoba have jointly invested close to $12.5 million
in funding each into 18 projects under this fund to date.
