Overview

The governments of Canada and Alberta are working together to make long-term infrastructure investments that will build inclusive and prosperous communities, as well as support a low carbon, green economy - leading to a higher quality of life for all Canadians.

Through the federal government's Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP), Alberta is receiving $3.65 billion over the next 10 years (2018-28). These projects will be cost-shared with the Alberta government, municipalities and other partners.

Program update (October 2019)

Thank you for your interest in the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP). The intake is now closed to new Expressions of Interest for funding under the Green Infrastructure; Community, Culture, and Recreation; and Rural and Northern Communities streams.

The Government of Alberta is currently conducting a coordinated review and decision-making process of applications submitted before intake closure on July 31, 2019. The timing of this review aligns with the provincial budget 2020 development process.

  • End of 2019: Applicants with ineligible projects will be notified that their project cannot be considered for funding. Remaining applicants can expect to be notified of their applications status.
  • Early 2020: Projects that are endorsed to proceed to the next stage will work with the province to submit a federal application.
  • Spring/Summer 2020: The federal application and approval process can take several months; the target is to have federal approvals in place in time for the 2020 construction season.

If you missed submitting your Expression of Interest before the July 31, 2019 intake deadline, or are not successful in receiving funding as part of the above process, please consider resubmitting it during the next intake, which is expected to open in spring 2020, depending on funding availability.

Please be aware that any tenders awarded, contracts signed and costs incurred prior to federal approval are ineligible through ICIP.
