Indigenous Peoples Participation Funding

The participation of Indigenous Peoples is essential to the success of the proposed HFR project. To support and encourage the participation of Indigenous Peoples in discussions related to the development of the HFR project in the Toronto to Québec City corridor, Transport Canada is making grant funding available through the Community Participation Funding Program - High Frequency Rail (CPFP-HFR). This funding may be accessed by eligible recipients following receipt of an invitation to participate in project-related engagement and consultation activities from Transport Canada and/or the HFR Team. Please contact for more information.
