Supporting the infrastructure needs of rural communities "$56"- * 5 r  /&84

The Town of Hawkesbury will receive up to $1,793,396 to replace water, sanitary and storm mains, which will help reduce incidences of combined sewer overflows. Ontario is providing small, rural and northern municipalities with funding to build and repair critical infrastructure and create jobs across the province. The province has approved 78 projects through the application-based component of the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund (OCIF) that will help communities maintain, repair, expand or update vital infrastructure such as bridges, roadways, water mains and sewage treatment systems. “Roads, bridges and water infrastructure are essential to rural communities across the province,” said Jeff Leal, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. “By partnering with communities and investing in these projects, our government is committed to ensuringmunicipalities have

the tools they need to build and maintain critical infrastructure.” Supporting small, rural and northern communities is part of the government’s economic plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people’s talents and skills, revitalizing public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire. “Investing in essential infrastructure projects not only increases the quality of life in communities across Ontario, but also creates jobs and generates significant economic growth in areas that need it most,” said Brad Duguid, Minister of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure. “I’m pleased that we aremoving forward with our plan to support small, rural and northern communities, and we will continue partnering with

municipalities across Ontario to make unprecedented infrastructure investments.” The Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund provides $100 million per year in funding for critical road, bridge, water and wastewater projects. $50million is available per year in fair and transparent formula- based funding and another $50 million per year in application-based funding. OCIF is part of Moving Ontario Forward, Ontario’s bold plan to invest in public infrastructure. The province is making an

unprecedented $130 billion investment in public infrastructure over the next ten years. This will support more than 110,000 jobs on average each year in construction and related industries. To be eligible for the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund, municipalities must have a population of less than 100,000 as of the 2011 census or be located in northern or rural Ontario.

The Le Sommet entrepreneurial class raised $407 for UnitedWay/Centraide Prescott- Russell. Mme Marie-Eve Comtois’ class raised funds through popcorn sales and by organizing a dance. Le Sommet students Marianne Séguin, Sébastien Sauvé and Antoine Robitaille learned a valuable lesson in the power of cooperation and raised much-needed funds for local charities. “The students will be joining me next month to help distribute cheques to the organizations we support so they can see what their funds support,” said Jodie Densmore, director of the UnitedWay/Centraide of Prescott- Russell. “In Hawkesbury, the United Way supports the following charities: Maison Interlude, 100%actif, Hawkesbury Central Food Bank, CentreMoi J’apprends, Groupe Action, Canadian Mental Heath Association, Bien se nourrir pour mieux apprendre and Services communautaires de Prescott-Russell.” Above, Marianne Séguin , Shirley Gratton-Payer, United Way Prescott-Russell Board member, and Sébastien Sauvé (Antoine Robitaille was absent)
