Eligibility Requirements

To determine if you are an eligible applicant or your project is eligible for funding refer to the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program: Rural and Northern stream program guidelines.

Ontario cannot guarantee funding to all applicants, nor can the province ensure that the total amount requested by successful applicants will be granted. Ontario reserves the right to nominate or not nominate for federal approval, any particular project or program for which an application is submitted. The decision to nominate all or part of an applicant request will depend on its fit to the program priorities, assessment criteria and the overall demand of funds in the program.

All provincially nominated projects are subject to federal review and approvals and may not be approved by the federal government for funding under this program.
