Budget 2017
Ottawa & Region

By Matthew Pearson, Ottawa Sun, March 22, 2017

Aside from the billions earmarked in the 2017 budget for housing and childcare, the government’s social infrastructure agenda includes millions of dollars for building new cultural spaces and making them accessible to all Canadians.

(...) Eligible projects include constructing and renovating buildings (adding ramps, automatic door openers and accessible washrooms), providing accessible information and communication technologies, and retrofitting vehicles.

(...) The government will also give Parks Canada $364 million over the next two years to manage national parks, marine conservation areas and historic sites.
