$900M set aside for infrastructure.

Northern Ontario will benefit from a joint Ontario-Canada program that will see $900 million invested in the renewal of public infrastructure in small towns across the province over a five-year period.

The new Canada-Ontario Municipal Rural Infrastructure Fund (COMRIF) represents a major investment in capital projects.

Ontario Minister of Natural Resources David Ramsay, Liberal MPP for Timiskaming-Cochrane, expects the fund to go towards new clean-water projects and will help pay for better waste management facilities.

Other money, he says, will go towards new road construction, bridges and maintenance.
