WELLINGTON COUNTY – North Wellington municipalities will receive nearly $2 million through the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund (OCIF) in 2020.
Province-wide, the fund will provide about $200 million to 424 small, rural and northern municipalities to assist with core infrastructure projects and asset management planning to address local priority needs.
Money is distributed through OCIF on a formula-based, as opposed to application based approach.
Under the program Mapleton will receive $399,840, Minto $506,543 and Wellington North $1,039,783.
“Small and rural municipalities have unique infrastructure needs,” explained Perth–Wellington MPP Randy Pettapiece. “I have always done everything I can to support local priorities in every corner of our riding.”
