The governments of Canada and Ontario have promised $362 million in community infrastructure over seven years in the Building Canada Fund - Communities Component Program.  The BCF-CC is an application-based competition to fund smaller projects in Ontario communities with populations less than 100,000.  Seventeen categories of infrastructure are eligible, including:  drinking water; green energy; disaster mitigation, solid waste management; culture; sport; connectivity; local roads; shortline railways; local and regional airports; tourism; brownfield redevelopment; and capacity building projects.  Criteria for Intake One priorities, application details, deadlines and supporting documents are available at www.bcfontario.ca or by contacting the BCF-CC Joint Secretariat at 1-866-306-7827.
