What is the Gas Tax Fund?

Gas Tax funding helps communities build and revitalize their public infrastructure. The fund supports national objectives of productivity, economic growth, clean environment and strong cities and communities.

Provinces and territories receive funding up front twice a year. In Yukon, eligible recipients include municipalities and First Nations. Recipients can pool, bank and borrow against this funding, providing significant financial flexibility. Yukon will recieve $163 million in Gas Tax funds by 2024.

Funding covers capital costs only.

What's new?

On August 10, Yukon received the first of two $8.25 million annual installments of the federal Gas Tax Fund from Canada. In total, Yukon will receive $16.5 million this year through the fund. Learn more.

On January 29, 2018 the Gas Tax oversight committee approved Yukon's report on performance measurement indicators. This report helps recipients complete final project reports (schedule D). This information is also used in the outcomes report due to Canada on March 31, 2018 and again in March 2023.
