Canada Community-Building Fund


The federal Canada Community-Building Fund (CCBF) provides predictable, long-term, stable funding for Canadian municipalities to help build and revitalize public infrastructure while creating jobs and long-term prosperity.

The CCBF agreement between Canada and Alberta covers 2014-15 to 2023-24 funding.  The CCBF program is expected to continue under a renewed agreement that will cover 2024-25 to 2033-34 funding.

Under the renewed CCBF, Alberta is expected to receive approximately $266 million in 2024-25.

Municipalities determine projects and activities based on local priorities within the general qualification criteria set out in the program guidelines. Municipalities can pool and bank this funding. This provides significant financial flexibility.

The funding provided under this program is in addition to other provincial grant funding, such as the Local Government Fiscal Framework, and non-grant funding of municipal infrastructure.

It is intended to cover capital costs only and may not be used for maintenance or operating costs, debt reduction, or replacement of existing municipal infrastructure expenditures.
