All About the Federal Gas Tax Fund

The federal Gas Tax Fund is a permanent source of funding for municipal infrastructure. It is predictable, long-term and stable, and is helping Ontario’s municipal governments address a massive, province-wide infrastructure deficit while improving environmental sustainability and creating jobs and economic growth.

Municipalities in Ontario receive predictable entitlement based funding through the Gas Tax Fund. In 2016 AMO will administer $617 million from the Fund to invest in local infrastructure. In total, Ontario’s municipalities will receive $3.8 billion between 2014 and 2018.
