NICKEL BELT – GREATER SUDBURY—The governments of Canada and Ontario are committed to investing in local infrastructure that ensures Canadians and their families have access to modern, reliable water and wastewater services that meet their needs. These investments safeguard the health and well-being of residents, protect waterways and preserve local ecosystems while laying the foundation for new economic opportunities to strengthen the middle class across the province.
Marc Serré, Member of Parliament for Nickel, on behalf of the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities today announced that a new project in Mattagami First Nation has been approved under the Government of Canada’s Clean Water and Wastewater Fund. The federal government is providing up to 50 per cent of funding for this project—$57,531. The provincial government is providing $28,677 and Mattagami First Nation will provide the balance of funding.
Thanks to this investment, the Mattagami First Nation will benefit from improved water and wastewater infrastructure currently servicing the community. Projects like these are essential to keeping our waterways clean and our communities and first nations healthy and livable.
This investment is part of an agreement between Canada and Ontario for the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund.
“This funding will ensure that Mattagami First Nation has adequate and reliable water and wastewater treatment infrastructure, and has access to clean and dependable drinking water now and for years to come. It is essential that we continue to work together to support our first nations and communities – they are at the heart of our economy and we must ensure that everyone has access to the opportunities they need to thrive.”
