Mississauga was presented with an exciting opportunity to revitalize its infrastructure and stimulate the local economy, thanks to an allocation of $145 million in funding under the federal and provincial government's infrastructure Stimulus Fund (ISF) program, plus $24 million for Recreational Infrastructure Canada (RInC) projects. In July 2012, all 153 of the City's projects were completed on time and on budget. Projects included developing Mississauga Celebration Square (downtown square), renovating libraries, building and refurbishing pools, roads, sidewalks, noise walls, park pathways and lighting, stormwater management, transit priority lanes, and improving the Hershey Centre

Funding Programs

Infrastructure Stimulus Fund (ISF)
On June 5, 2009, the Canadian and Ontario governments announced a joint investment of $1.85 billion for infrastructure projects to create jobs and help stimulate the economy. For municipal projects, the federal and provincial governments will each contribute up to one-third of eligible costs, with municipalities contributing one third, so that all parties equally share the total project costs. Projects focus largely on the rehabilitation of existing assets such as water, wastewater, public transit, highways, roads, culture, parks and trails. Mississauga's approved 132 ISF projects must be completed by October 31, 2011 to be eligible for funding.

Recreational Infrastructure Canada (RInC)
On June 26, 2009 the Canadian and Ontario governments announced an investment of more than $380 million in recreational infrastructure projects over a two-year period. Each level of government is contributing up to one-third of a project's eligible cost up to a maximum of $1 million each, per project, with recipients providing the balance. Mississauga has received funding for six outdoor pools. Construction will begin in March 2010 and must be materially completed by October 31, 2011 to be eligible.
