The federal Canada Community-Building Fund (CCBF) was part of the federal Budget 2014, and runs from 2014 to 2024. The program is expected to continue under a renewed agreement beginning in 2024.

The CCBF provides predictable, long-term, stable funding for Canadian municipalities to help build and revitalize public infrastructure while creating jobs and long-term prosperity.

Under the CCBF, Alberta will receive $266 million in 2023-24, for a total of more than $2.8 billion since 2014-15.

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 Municipal Sustainability Initiative, 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.
