The federal government has earmarked $400 million over the next two years, mostly to rehabilitate its buildings. According to a CBC report, Christian Paradis, Minister of Public Works and Government Services, announced April 8 to reporters that the government was spending about $320 million on common repairs, and another $40 million on making them accessible to the disabled. Paradis indicated that $100 million worth of contracts had already been given out and that the rest would be issued by the end of April, said the CBC.

Public Works also plans to spend $40 million on repairing bridges owned by the federal government, two in the Ottawa region, one in Kingston, and one in Burlington, Ontario.
