How much for the project? Total cost for the project is more than $75 million for a 224-bed facility, but the provincial government will cover about 30 per cent of the total project construction cost. The UCPR plans to finance its share of the project through an Infrastructure Ontario loan, over a 25-year period. The base case annual budget scenario for the UCPR, for paying back the loan, is about $7.4 million each year.
