In 2017, Canadians across the country will celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary of Confederation (Canada 150), a key milestone in the life of our country. The overarching theme to celebrating  Canada 150 is “Strong. Proud. Free”, which includes a vision to Give Back to Canada, through lasting legacies that extend beyond 2017.

As part of the government-wide Canada 150 celebrations, the Government of Canada has launched the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program, which will invest $150 million over two years to rehabilitate and improve existing community infrastructure across Canada.

Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD), on behalf of the Government of Canada, will deliver the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program in Western Canada and will invest $43.2 million in projects aiming to rehabilitate existing cultural and community infrastructure. These projects will reflect our shared history and optimism for the future while leaving a lasting legacy in celebration of Canada 150.

Detailed information on the delivery of the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program in Western Canada,  including important details on eligibility, application requirements and program priorities, are available on the WD website
