Canada Community-Building Fund Projects

Canada Community-Building Fund

The Canada Community-Building Fund (CCBF) is a permanent source of federal funding for local infrastructure. Funds are provided to communities twice a year and can be strategically invested to address local priorities. 

Each year the County of Wellington selectively determines which projects to partially fund through CCBF reserves with the specific objective of improving the local infrastructure.
