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 (September 2020)

Thank you for your interest in the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP). Alberta Infrastructure is no longer accepting Expressions of Interest (EOI) for funding from the ICIP Green Infrastructure; Community, Culture, and Recreation; or Rural and Northern Communities funding streams.

The Province received 13 project approvals for ICIP funding from Infrastructure Canada in 2018 and 2019. As part of Budget 2020, the Province has endorsed more than 70 projects in more than 30 constituencies to move forward to the federal application stage. Applicants with endorsed projects have been working with the Province to fulfil the federal application requirements, and federal approvals are being secured so that construction can start as soon as possible. See the list of Announced Federally Approved Projects (PDF, 365 KB)

As ICIP was significantly over-subscribed, there will be no future intakes. This includes access to the new COVID-19 Resilience funding stream recently announced by the federal government. This short-term, targeted COVID-19 Resilience funding stream does not provide new money to provinces; instead, it gives provinces a better cost sharing agreement with the federal government for the remaining funds in ICIP for a broad range of projects, from building retrofits to new pathways and bike lanes to help Canadians physically distance while staying active.

At this time, the provincial government has decided to allocate any ICIP funding remaining to the COVID-19 Resilience stream for the use of the provincial government. This 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.
