The Canada-Ontario Municipal Rural Infrastructure Fund's (COMRIF) goal is to help residents in Ontario's small urban centres and rural municipalities enjoy a quality of life that's second to none. We do this through infrastructure investments that:

  • enhance and renew Ontario's aging public infrastructure;
  • improve the quality of the environment;
  • protect the health and safety of citizens;
  • support long-term economic growth; and
  • build strong, sustainable communities by giving municipalities the tools they need.

COMRIF responds to local needs and priorities by helping to provide cleaner water, better sewage systems, upgraded waste management processes, and safer roads and bridges. Our overall aim is to support "green" projects that meet Canada's and Ontario's environmental objectives, while improving the health and safety of Ontario residents.

The governments of Canada and Ontario have each contributed up to $298 million to COMRIF. With municipal investments, this program is expected to stimulate up to $900 million in infrastructure investments over five years to help meet local priorities.
