Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program: Public Transit Stream


The Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) is a cost-shared infrastructure funding program between the federal government, provinces and territories, and municipalities and other recipients. This program will see up to $30 billion in combined federal, provincial and other partner funding, under four priority areas, including public transit.

The Public Transit stream will support the construction, expansion and improvement of public transit systems and networks across Ontario.


Thank you for your interest in the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program: Public Transit stream. Applications for the July 2019 intake are now closed.

Eligibility Requirements

Municipalities located inside the GTHA which receive Provincial Gas Tax funding, reported ridership data to the Canadian Urban Transit Association (CUTA) for 2015, and Metrolinx, have received an allocation and are eligible to apply under the Public Transit stream.

Please refer to the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program: Public Transit stream program guidelines for assistance on submitting your application; required documents and other program information. Funding under the Public Transit Stream was determined by Infrastructure Canada. Funding is based on existing public transit systems as noted above, and allocations are based solely on their respective ridership.

Note: additional supporting documents can be uploaded in Grants Ontario after submitting your application form. In addition, applicants cannot make changes to the application after the deadline. However, as part of the review process, Ontario may seek clarification and supplementary information.

The province will notify applicants if a project has been nominated for federal review. Please note that being nominated for federal approval does not deem a project to be successful for funding. Successful/unsuccessful applicants will be advised as soon as notification of federal approval has been provided to the Ministry.
