About Gas Tax Funds

What is the Gas Tax Fund?

As part of the New Building Canada Plan, the renewed federal Gas Tax Fund provides predictable, long-term, stable funding for Canadian municipalities to help them build and revitalize local public infrastructure while creating jobs and long-term prosperity.

Funding is provided up front, twice-a-year, to provinces and territories. In Yukon, this funding flows to municipalities, First Nations and unincorporated communities to support local infrastructure priorities.

Recipients can pool, bank and borrow against this funding, providing significant financial flexibility.
