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.

In August 2020, the federal government announced the new COVID-19 Resilience funding stream. This short-term, targeted COVID-19 stream does not provide new money to provinces. Instead, it gives provinces a better cost sharing agreement with the federal government and offers more flexibility as to how provinces use their remaining ICIP funds.
The COVID-19 stream targets a broad range of projects that can be actioned and completed quickly to support employment and economic activity to help offset challenges brought on by the pandemic.
We transferred the ICIP funding remaining in the Green Infrastructure, Community, Culture, and Recreation, and Rural and Northern Communities streams, to the COVID-19 stream.
Funding will be used for capital maintenance and renewal improvements to public infrastructure as part of Alberta’s Recovery Plan to build, diversify, and create tens of thousands of jobs in our province.
In February 2021, Alberta received COVID-19 stream approval for 2 bundles of 7 capital maintenance and renewal projects for 6 government-owned facilities in Calgary, Edmonton and Wetaskiwin.
Alberta is finalizing additional project submissions that may include capital maintenance and renewal for health and seniors facilities and is working towards receiving federal approval on all submissions by early spring.
