“I am pleased that the Government of Canada is providing Alberta with some flexibility as to how we can best use Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) funding to support communities during these challenging times.
“The new ICIP COVID-19 funding stream will give Alberta some flexibility to fund shovel-ready projects. This will help counter the impact of the COVID-19 crisis by supporting jobs for Albertans and providing much-needed projects in local communities.
“I am working closely with my federal and provincial colleagues to get projects started as quickly as possible. While Alberta has very little ICIP money left to allocate, I look forward to further supports to Alberta’s economy."
