September 14, 2018  By Ground Water Canada

Saskatoon, Sask. – The federal and provincial governments have announced more than $53.9 million in joint funding for 46 Saskatchewan projects – including 41 drinking water and wastewater projects – through the Small Communities Fund.

Funding for these projects will help upgrade and expand water and wastewater systems, and enhance local roads, Infrastructure Canada said in a news release.

More than $80.9 million in combined federal, provincial and local recipient funding will be invested in projects across the province.


Federal and provincial governments will each provide more than $26.9 million for the 46 projects, representing approximately two-thirds of the total costs. The recipients will be responsible for the remaining costs.

Of the 46 projects, a combined total of $48,252,136 in federal-provincial funding will go toward the 41 drinking water and wastewater projects, $4,731,082 will go toward the four road projects, and $994,666 will be allocated to a disaster mitigation project.
