About the investment

Some of Ontario’s small and rural municipalities may have limited capacity to plan, modernize and improve the way they provide services to their communities. That’s why we’re investing in 405 small and rural municipalities across Ontario to help support them in delivering modern and efficient services.

Funds will be distributed by March 31, 2019.

Funding amounts by municipality

To ensure investments are targeted to where they are needed most, funding is allocated based on:

  • the number of households in a municipality
  • whether the municipality is urban or rural
