Ottawa – Infrastructure Canada and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities together will fund 72 infrastructure initiatives in communities across Canada through three funding programs. Projects include an aquifer capability and ground water vulnerability mapping in Springfield, Man.

The three programs are the Municipalities for Climate Innovation Program, the Municipal Asset Management Program, and the Green Municipal Fund, according to a news release from Infrastructure Canada.

Under the funding, the City of Coquitlam, B.C., is studying new and emerging technologies to harvest and store sources of renewable energy in order to reduce corporate emissions, and Gatineau, Que., is carrying out a climate change adaptation feasibility study that will strategically increase the quality and quantity of vegetation and open green spaces.
