In a press release issued yesterday, Pontiac MP William Amos said he was pleased to announce that, as part of the 2019 budget, the Government of Canada will provide an additional $ 2.2 billion directly to Canadian municipalities through the federal Gas Tax Fund. As a result, an additional $ 1.6 million will be made available to the municipalities in the Pontiac for immediate investments in order to take full advantage of the next construction season. During Sunday’s nomination, Amos gave a few early details about the announcement:

Concretely, the municipalities of Pontiac will be able to count on more than $5 million on new investment to finance projects that will directly benefit the citizens. For the MRC des Collines-de-l’Outaouais, the five municipalities that make up this electoral district will share $1,746,794 while the municipalities of the MRC Pontiac will receive $1,657,288 and those in the MRC Vallée- de Gatineau will receive $1,655,394. The city of Gatineau, which is part of the four riding in the Outaouais, will receive $11,260,358. These are the sums that will be invested directly in our communities and in our local infrastructures!” said Will Amos in a facebook post.

The table below shows the additional amount each Pontiac municipality will receive.
