Niagara West MPP Sam Oosterhoff just announced nearly $4.5 million in infrastructure funding for west Niagara municipalities.
Five municipalities in western Niagara are about to get a much-needed infrastructure boost from the provincial government.

The Province is sending $4,488,351 to Lincoln, Grimsby, West Lincoln, Pelham and Wainfleet to help offset costs in road repairs, bridge repairs and water and sewage rebuilding.

Niagara West MPP Sam Oosterhoff recently announced the nearly $4.5 million funding through the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund (OCIF) coming to the communities in 2023.

“Our government is committed to supporting our local municipalities by creating jobs, attracting economic growth and investment, and making Niagara West the best place to live and grow,” said Oosterhoff.

“This increased funding will help build and repair roads, bridges, water and wastewater infrastructure in our community.”

The provincial investments will see Grimsby receive $1,929,285, followed by Lincoln at $1,094,719. Pelham will collect $836,829 while West Lincoln will receive $526,605. Finally, Wainfleet will see $100,913 in funding.

OCIF provides funding to eligible communities every year to help them address critical infrastructure needs, including road, bridge, water and wastewater projects.  The provincial allocations for local communities in Niagara have almost more than doubled since 2020.
