The Governments of Canada and Ontario each committed over $5 million for the 13 projects, which have a total eligible cost of more than $15 million. Recipient communities will be responsible for all remaining project costs. So far, the vast majority of the projects approved under this Fund are in communities with a population of less than 25,000.
