Targeted infrastructure investments planned for Inuit Nunangat
The Government of Canada recognizes the need to address social and economic inequities between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. Budget 2021 announced the Indigenous Community Infrastructure Fund (ICIF), a distinctions-based fund to support immediate demands, as prioritized by Indigenous partners. Today the Government of Canada announced that $517.8 million is available for shovel-ready infrastructure projects for Inuit communities. This funding will help close the infrastructure gaps by 2030.
