Chatham-Kent is inline for more than $5.3 million in infrastructure funding from the province, according to one local MPP.
Rick Nicholls, MPP for Chatham-Kent–Leamington, said the funds are part of a commitment to invest in small, rural and northern communities.
It’s part of the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund (OCIF), and is intended to aid municipalities in maintaining and adding roads, bridges, water and wastewater infrastructure.
“Our government promised to support our local municipalities with new jobs, economic growth and investment, and making our community the best place to live and grow,” Nicholls said in a media release. “Using this funding, we will be able to help build and repair roads, bridges, water and wastewater infrastructure to keep up with our growing community.”
