The governments of Canada and Quebec are taking decisive action to support community needs by investing in green infrastructure projects in all regions of Quebec. Providing communities with modern and reliable water infrastructure is a shared priority for both governments.

The Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, and Andrée Laforest, Quebec's Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, announced joint funding contributions of over $637.8 million for 280 drinking water, storm water and wastewater projects in municipalities throughout Quebec. These projects include the rehabilitation of existing water pipes, pumping stations and water treatment facilities as well as the construction of new facilities.

The Government of Canada is investing $318.9 million in these projects through the Green Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada infrastructure plan. The Government of Quebec is providing over $318.9 million through the Fonds pour l'infrastructure municipale d'eau (FIMEAU) funding program.
