The First Nation Infrastructure Fund (FNIF) provides support to First Nations communities looking to enhance their public infrastructure in nine categories, including but not limited to:
- planning and skills developments
- solid waste management
- roads and bridges
- structural mitigation
- fire protection
By upgrading and/or increasing infrastructure within these catergories, communities can continue to improve their resilience and adapt to a changing climate.
FNIF is complementary to the Capital Facilities and Maintenance Program. The deadline to submit an investment plan for FNIF is the fall of each year, and there is no deadline to receive funding.
