Invest in Canada Plan Funding

The Government of Canada is investing more than 73 million dollars as part of the Invest in Canada Plan. This funding will help push forward 61 infrastructure projects across the country. The City of St. Albert will be the recipient of over 10 million dollars to help fund seven major projects. This plan is part of the COVID-19 Resilience Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada Plan.

The City of St. Albert’s projects will provide citizens with safe and sustainable public infrastructure, while supporting economic recovery in the region by providing jobs and recreation opportunities.

“The City is most appreciative of the ongoing partnership with all levels of government as we try to invest in projects in our community as part of the nation-wide recovery from COVID-19," said Mayor Cathy Heron.

List of Projects Invest in Canada Plan will support:

Project Name Project Details
Kingsmeade Park Design and build a community park on the Kingswood Park site.
Fowler Athletic Park Refurbishment Refurbish the Fowler Athletic Park facility with a new track surface and field amenities.
Servus Place Roofing and Lifecycle Replacement Repair and refurbish multiple roof sections and replace the pool filtration system, the water slide, and other equipment at the City's main community recreation centre.

While the funds announced were previously allocated to Transit initiatives over a 10-Year timeframe, the City can move forward with these infrastructure investments to maintain existing facilities and provide new amenities for current and future generations to enjoy.
