National Trade Corridors Fund

The $4.6 billion National Trade Corridors Fund (NTCF) helps fund infrastructure projects in Canada. Infrastructure projects could include work to airports, ports, railways, transportation facilities, and access roads.

The NTCF funds projects that:

  • improve the flow of goods and people in Canada
  • increase the flow of trade in and out of Canada
  • help the transportation system to:
    • withstand the effects of climate change
    • better adapt to new technologies and innovation
