Communication requirements–Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program


To ensure Canadians are aware of the Government of Canada's investments for infrastructure improvements in Northern Ontario through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program, funding recipients will be required to mention the financial assistance received from the government in all communications activities and will have to officially recognize the Government's contribution to their project.

General Principles

Communications activities may include:

Both official languages will be used for the production of information destined to the public, including acknowledgements on websites, signs, plaques and other such material.

Organizing events and announcements

As the Recipient, you are required to work with Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada/FedNor officials to organize the Project approval announcement, to be held at a mutually agreeable date and time. The Recipient may also be responsible to organize any other event related to the project including, but not limited to, milestone events, ground-breaking and ribbon-cutting ceremonies.

Acknowledgement on the funding recipient's website

As a funding recipient, you are required to ensure the Government of Canada is recognized for its contribution by posting an acknowledgement of the funding and appropriate logos on your website. For example, the acknowledgement could read: "Renovations to the Community Centre were supported by the Government of Canada through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program." You must include the Canada 150 logo, as well as the Canada Wordmark.

Production and display of recognition signage

The requirement to produce a sign or plaque will be determined on a project-by-project basis. Generally, if a sign or plaque is required, the type and size of signage will be determined based on the dollar value of the contribution to the Project, as will the duration for which signage is posted. Projects requiring signage will be determined by Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada/FedNor. As the Recipient, you are responsible for producing and erecting Project signs, as required. Signage will constitute an eligible cost.
