Infrastructure Improvements in Store for Thunder Bay-Superior North

Ontario Government Building Stronger Communities, Creating Jobs

March 12, 2014 - The Ontario Liberal government is investing more than $3 million to support improvements to three critical infrastructure projects in Thunder Bay-Superior North.

The province is supporting these improvements through the Small, Rural and Northern Municipal Infrastructure Fund, which is providing $100 million to help municipalities across the province build and maintain key infrastructure.

Local Projects include: 

  • Replacing the Court Street bridge in Thunder Bay ($2 million)
  • Upgrading the filtration system in a water treatment plant in Nipigon ($360,000)
  • Repairing the Geraldton Ward and Longlac Ward water towers in Greenstone ($713,600)

Investing in modern infrastructure is part of our government’s economic plan that is creating jobs for today and tomorrow. The comprehensive plan and its six priorities focus on Ontario’s greatest strengths — its people and strategic partnerships. Investing in infrastructure helps deliver on the Growth Plan for Northern Ontario.


“Our government continues to invest in new and modern infrastructure that is building stronger communities, growing regional economies and creating jobs across our riding. By investing in these crucial projects, we are expanding opportunities for Northern residents and businesses and improving the economic well-being of the province.” — Michael Gravelle, MPP Thunder Bay-Superior North

“A strong, prosperous Northern Ontario requires modern and efficient infrastructure. Through this fund, our government is helping communities renew and replace roads, bridges and other critical infrastructure that will attract investment, create jobs and help drive economic growth.” — Jeff Leal, Minister of Rural Affairs



  •  Since 2003, the Ontario government has provided approximately $13 billion to help municipalities repair and upgrade roads, bridges, water, wastewater treatment facilities and other critical community infrastructure.
  • Over the next three years, Ontario is investing more than $35 billion in infrastructure across the province, which will support more than 100,000 jobs on average each year.
