Province Supports 23 Municipalities Through Connecting Links Program

TORONTO - The Ontario government is putting people first by helping 23 municipalities make roads and bridges safer, and ensure Ontario is open for business and open for jobs.

This year, the government will provide $30 million to support 25 Connecting Links projects across the province. The funding covers up to 90 per cent of eligible project costs, to a maximum of $3 million. Eligible costs include the design, construction, renewal, rehabilitation and replacement of municipal roads and bridges that run through communities and connect to provincial highways.

"We are investing in municipal roads and bridges to keep families safe and to support jobs and growth in local communities," said Transportation Minister Caroline Mulroney. "We are working with municipal partners to make investments to help ensure Ontario's transportation system works for everyone."

All eligible municipalities are encouraged to apply for funding for the 2020-21 Connecting Links Program, which will be open to applications later this year.
