The Government of Canada is committed to supporting green infrastructure projects in Ontario. The commitment was reiterated on July 10, 2019 by François-Philippe Champagne, minister of infrastructure and communities, Vance Badawey, member of parliament for Niagara Centre, and Chris Bittle, member of parliament for St. Catharines.

“Investment in green infrastructure is essential to building strong communities and providing our kids and grandkids with a healthy and sustainable future,” said Champagne. “Niagara Falls, the entire region, and indeed all corners of the province of Ontario have critical investments to make in safe drinking water, wastewater, and flood protection, all projects that can be funded under the Green Stream. It is time to work with every order of government to move forward on these projects for the benefit of Ontarians in every corner of the province.”
