Brockville -Area municipalities will receive more than $1.4 million for local infrastructure projects through Ontario’s new COVID-19 Resilience Infrastructure Stream, Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes MPP Steve Clark announced today. 

“I’m proud that our government continues to deliver on the commitment we made to support our local municipal partners by providing them with the resources they need to build and repair roads, bridges and water and wastewater systems,” said Clark. “This critical infrastructure is not only necessary to ensure our communities remain great places to live, it helps us attract new investment and create jobs as our economy continues to recover from COVID-19.”

The funding announced by MPP Clark today is a part of Ontario’s approximately $250 million commitment to municipalities through the COVID Stream to assist with local infrastructure projects.
