Canada Community-Building Fund

Municipalities can apply for funding for projects to build and revitalize public infrastructure.

Overview

The federal government has changed the name of the Gas Tax Fund to the Canada Community-Building Fund (CCBF). This name change reflects the program’s evolution and does not alter or modify its objectives or requirements.

The federal CCBF (formerly the federal Gas Tax Fund) was part of the federal Budget 2014, and runs from 2014 to 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 $255 million in 2022/23, for a total of more than $2.5 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.
