Services and information

Overview

The governments of Canada and Alberta are working together to make long-term infrastructure investments that will create economic growth, sustain well-paying jobs, build inclusive communities and 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 (June 2019)

There's been overwhelming interest in ICIP, with more than 600 Expressions of Interest (EOI) received since the program launched in April 2018.

ICIP intake for the following funding streams will close July 31, 2019 to allow for a coordinated program review as part of the provincial budget development process:

  • Green Infrastructure
  • Community, Culture and Recreation Infrastructure
  • Rural and Northern Communities Infrastructure

To be considered for Budget 2020, complete EOIs for these funding streams must be received by July 31, 2019 at 11:59pm.

  • Projects received since April 2018 will be considered as part of this decision-making process, unless applicants have received notification of provincial endorsement, federal approval, ineligibility, or notified Alberta Infrastructure that they wish to withdraw their project.
  • Applicants who have already submitted EOIs are encouraged to update their application by:
  • Applicants whose projects are ineligible under ICIP will be notified in fall of 2019.
  • Eligible project applicants can expect to be notified about the status of their EOI after the provincial budget is released in spring 2020.

Intake is expected to re-open in spring of 2020, depending on funding availability. Please remember that any tenders awarded, contracts signed, or costs incurred prior to federal approval are ineligible through ICIP.

Eligible municipalities with public transit authorities can continue to submit applications for the Public Transit Infrastructure funding stream at ICIP.Transit@gov.ab.ca.
