Recreational Infrastructure Canada (RInC) is a national program announced in
Budget 2009, which provides a temporary economic stimulus of $500 million across Canada between now and March 31, 2011, to share the cost of repairing, upgrading and expanding existing recreational infrastructure in Canadian communities. RInC is delivered across Canada by regional development agencies. Indian and Northern Affairs Canada will implement RInC in the three Northern territories, until the new economic development agency for the North is operational.
Projects approved under RInC must be completed by the end of March 2011. For approved projects, the federal, provincial and territorial governments will each provide one third of the total eligible cost, up to $1 million each, with the recipient investing the balance.
Applications for RInC funding in the North will be accepted and reviewed until
June 15, 2009.
Completed applications should be mailed, faxed or emailed to the appropriate Regional Office contact.
Please note that the application process for Recreational Infrastructure Canada (RInC) in the North closed on June 15th. As decisions are made to support RInC projects in the territories, this website will be updated and successful applicants will be contacted to complete a contribution agreement.
