Federal Gas Tax Fund – Benefiting Cumberland Colchester

Today, the Government of Canada delivered the first of two annual $27 million federal Gas Tax Fund (GTF) installments to Nova Scotia. In total, the province will be provided with over $55 million this year through the fund.  The funding, which flows through the provincial government to all of its municipalities, is based on a funding formula agreed upon by the Nova Scotia Union of Municipalities

Money from the GTF will flow into Cumberland Colchester, enabling our municipalities to undertake local infrastructure projects.Based on previous years, GTF funding supports approximately 180 local infrastructure projects across Nova Scotia each year.
