The Prime Minister's announcement of new government funding for transit puts Canada on the fast track. Projects over $1 billion will be eligible for funding from the Public Transit Fund and the Federal Government contribution will increase.

"The new Public Transit Fund is a game-changing announcement that will invest in world class public transit in our cities," stated Mark Romoff, President and CEO of The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships.

The Public Transit Fund will allow provinces, territories and smaller communities to access more funds from the existing Building Canada Fund. In particular, the announcement to invest up to $2.6 billion in Toronto's Smart Track plan will free up money for other key projects across Ontario. The Federal Government is also increasing its portion of project funding under the P3 Canada Fund from 25% to 33%.
