The Government of Alberta has announced a continuous intake period for Investing in Canada Plan applications. Originally, the first intake period closed August 1, 2018, with a second intake period to be determined later in 2018. Instead, the Government of Alberta will accept applications continuously, but will continue to evaluate and provide provincial funding for projects as their annual budgeting timelines and processes allow. Further information on eligibility parameters, application procedures, and other key information is available on the Government of Alberta website.
As a reminder, Investing in Canada Plan funding is a federal infrastructure funding program that requires cost-sharing between federal, provincial, and municipal governments. The Investing in Canada Plan is divided into the following components (click on the links for more information, as well as application and reporting instructions for each stream):
All municipal projects supported by the Investing in Canada plan will be cost shared between federal, provincial/territorial, and municipal levels of government. The federal government has committed to contributing up to 40% of costs for municipal projects under all streams, except for the Rural and Northern Communities Infrastructure stream, where the federal government will contribute up to 50% of costs, and up to 60% of costs for municipalities with a population below 5,000. Provincial contributions on municipal projects will be at least 33.3% of project costs.
In addition to municipalities, the Government of Alberta, non-profit organizations, Indigenous Ultimate Recipients, and for-profit organizations (when working collaboratively with a municipality, provincial body, or Indigenous Ultimate Recipient) are eligible to apply for funding under most Investing in Canada plan streams.
