Point Edward — The Ontario government is providing $13,349,590 to help renew and rehabilitate local infrastructure in Sarnia-Lambton. The funding is being delivered through the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund (OCIF) and is part of the government’s overall investment of $400 million in 2023.

“I’m extremely pleased to announce that the Ontario government is providing more than $13.3 million to municipalities in Sarnia-Lambton through the Ontario Community Investment Fund,” said Sarnia-Lambton MPP Bob Bailey. “OCIF provides funding to eligible communities every year to help them address critical infrastructure needs, including road, bridge, water and wastewater projects.”
