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.
Projects approved under RInC must be completed by the end of March 2011, and can receive up to $1 million in federal funding. Federal funding from all sources will normally represent one-third of RInC project costs. In exceptional circumstances, funding may be provided up to 50 per cent (this may include small communities where there is no municipal tax base), but still to a maximum of $1 million.
