Investing in modern, sustainable infrastructure

Infrastructure is the foundation of healthy and prosperous communities. It connects Canadians and gets them to and from work, school, and home. It makes our communities appealing places where people can and want to live, play, and raise families. And by investing in modern, sustainable infrastructure, we are reducing harmful emissions, supporting supply chains, and propelling Canada forward as a global leader in the clean economy.

I was honoured to join the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury to celebrate the grand opening of a community hub on 177 Church Street, supported by a federal investment of $5.3 million through the Green and Inclusive Community Buildings (GICB) program. The GICB program invests in green and accessible retrofits, repairs, or upgrades of existing community buildings that serve high-needs, underserved communities across Canada. In Budget 2024, our government announced an additional investment of $500 million to support more projects through the program until 2029.

At the community hub, the GICB program helped redo the exterior walls, foundations, roof, windows, and doors of the building, and replace existing equipment with energy efficient models. 

The community hub will help residents of Bradford West Gwillimbury access vital social services and communtiy service organizations such as the Helping Hand Food Bank, CrossTrainers Canada, WOW Living, Out of the Cold Cafe, Catulpa Community Support Services, and Simcoe Muskoka Family Connexions. 

As Canada’s population continues to grow, it is more important than ever to ensure we build the right infrastructure now to construct a prosperous and sustainable future for all Canadians.
