The governments of Canada and Saskatchewan signed a bilateral agreement in 2018 for the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP). The program will provide more than $900 million in federal funding for all types of Saskatchewan infrastructure projects over 10 years until 2028. 

These projects will be cost-shared by the federal and provincial governments, municipalities and other eligible recipients.

  • a cleaner environment by reducing soil and air pollutants;
  • improvements to drinking water, wastewater and/or storm water systems;
  • increased capacity for disaster mitigation;    
  • reduced greenhouse gas emissions;    
  • enhanced public parks, recreational facilities and other spaces that make communities great places to live;    
  • faster commutes and travel times and easier movement of goods for businesses;    
  • better transportation and digital infrastructure for people living in remote communities.

Eligible applicants

  • First Nations and Métis communities and governing bodies    
  • Public sector bodies, such as utility boards    
  • Not-for-profit organizations, such as recreation or community associations and boards
