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 2017, AMO administered $617 million from the Fund to invest in local infrastructure. AMO will administer almost $647 million in 2018. In total, Ontario’s municipalities will receive $3.8 billion between 2014 and 2018.
