MHCA, AMM collaborate to see infrastructure investment enhanced

MHCA and the Association of Manitoba Municipalities have signed a letter of collaboration, agreeing to work together to see infrastructure investment enhanced to kickstart Manitoba’s economy.

The letter, signed May 5, notes the organizations have a long history of cooperation on infrastructure investment priorities, roads, highways, wastewater and water-control structures, and aggregate resource development including the rehabilitation of depleted quarries.

As Manitoba moves to economic recovery, the associations agree to work together to:

  • help identify shovel-ready and other major infrastructure projects in municipalities across the province to stimulate the recovery of the Canadian economy
  • call on Manitoba to restart the Quarry Rehabilitation Program and encourage the use of local contractors to rehabilitate pits and quarries to create spaces that align with local community needs
  • expedite Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) applications at the provincial and federal levels to ensure Manitoba’s ICIP allocations are fully utilized by implementing flexible funding streams
  • appeal to the federal government to provide greater financial support by increasing direct funding programs, such as the Gas Tax Fund allotment top-up
