Bryan May, Member of Parliament for Cambridge, the Honourable Kathryn McGarry, Member of Provincial Parliament for Cambridge, and Doug Craig, Mayor of Cambridge today announced that two new projects in Cambridge have been approved under the Government of Canada’s Clean Water and Waste Water Fund. The federal government is providing up to 50 per cent of funding for these projects—$1,349,902. The provincial government is providing $674,951, and the City of Cambridge will provide the remaining funding.
Residents of Cambridge will benefit from federal, provincial, and municipal funding which will go towards the renewal of water, sanitary, and storm water infrastructure on both Berkley Road and Selkirk Street.
The governments of Canada and Ontario are committed to investing in local infrastructure that ensures Canadians and their families have access to modern, reliable water and wastewater services that meet their needs. These investments safeguard the health and well-being of residents, protect waterways, and preserve local ecosystems while laying the foundation for new economic opportunities to strengthen the middle class across the province.
This investment is part of an agreement between Canada and Ontario for the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund.
