Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program

The Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program (CIP 150) is now concluded; applications for this program are no longer being accepted. The program officially came to a close on March 31, 2018.

The CIP 150 was part of Canada 150 Celebrates, the Government of Canada's celebration of our country's 150th anniversary. Through investments in community infrastructure, the Government of Canada invested in projects that celebrate our shared heritage, create jobs, and improve the quality of life for Canadians.

Western Economic Diversification Canada delivered the program across Western Canada (British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba) with a total allocation of $92.4 million over two years.

Initiatives supported by CIP 150 were chosen based on assessment criteria that focused on the renovation, expansion and improvement of existing community and cultural infrastructure, including projects that support a better future for Indigenous peoples and promote a clean growth economy.
