Simcoe-Grey MPP Brian Saunderson has announced that the Ontario Government is investing more than $16 million to help renew and rehabilitate critical infrastructure in the region.

The announcement came Dec. 13.

The funding is being delivered through the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund and is part of the government’s plan to support economic growth and job creation.

“I am very pleased to announce the 2024 OCIF funding allocations and to share the amounts each municipality in Simcoe-Grey will receive,” MPP Saunderson said.

The 2024 OCIF funding allocations are as follows:

  • Township of Adjala-Tosorontio: $424,723
  • Clearview Township: $754,648
  • Town of Collingwood: $1,375,722
  • Township of Essa: $824,234
  • Town of New Tecumseth: $2,095,259
  • Town of The Blue Mountains: $1,682,407
  • Town of Wasaga Beach: $1,520,237
  • Grey County: $3,309,832
  • County of Simcoe: $4,439,360

The OCI funding will assist municipalities in financing critical community infrastructure and capital needs, including water, wastewater, road and bridge projects.

OCIF provides funding for local infrastructure projects in communities with populations under 100,000 and all rural and northern communities.

Funding allocations are based on a formula that considers each community’s different needs and economic conditions.
