Connecting Links 2022-2023

Published on September 10, 2021

Through the Connecting Links program, Ontario helps municipalities repair designated municipal roadways and bridges that connect two ends of a provincial highway through a community or to a border crossing.

For 2022-23, the Ontario government is providing $30 million to support Connecting Link projects across the province.

The Connecting Links program funding covers up to 90 per cent of eligible project costs, to a maximum of $3 million for road projects and $5 million for bridge projects. Funding is provided for the design, construction, renewal, rehabilitation and replacement of connecting link infrastructure.

The application period for the 2022-23 Connecting Links Program is now open.
