QUEBEC CITY — The federal government and the Government of Quebec have announced funding for 28 infrastructure projects in the Quebec City region.
The projects include upgrades to municipal drinking water, stormwater management and wastewater collection systems and the addition of new pumping stations.
The Government of Canada is spending $32 million through the Green Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada Plan. The Government of Quebec is also contributing $32 million through the Fonds pour l’infrastructure municipale d’eau program.
“In the Quebec City region and throughout the province, there is a significant need to modernize municipal infrastructure,” said Deputy Premier Genevieve Guilbault in a recent statement.
“Our government understands that the work related to the production of drinking water and treatment of wastewater generates major costs for all municipalities throughout Quebec. This is why it is essential for us to support them in offering quality essential services to our citizens.”
