Building Canada Fund - Ontario: Partners
Through the Building Canada Fund (BCF), the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario are working in partnership with Ontario municipalities to improve and revitalize public infrastructure across the province.
Works with its partners to meet the evolving infrastructure needs of Canadian communities, and to support the quality of life of Canadians through a variety of programs, including the Building Canada Fund in Ontario.
The department oversaw Building Canada negotiations with provinces and territories on behalf of the Government of Canada.
The Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure (MEI) works with many partners inside and outside government to build the schools, public transit, hospitals and energy generation facilities that help power our economy - and ensure Ontario remains one of the best places in the world to live, work, invest and raise a family.
A top priority is ensuring the modernization of public infrastructure, as part of an integrated vision that encourages the kind of growth and environmental stewardship that enhances our quality of life and contributes to our economic success.
