As part of the fall 2021 Supplemental Capital Budget Adjustment (SCBA), $4 million was approved for the Missing Sidewalks Program. With this funding, planning and design was completed for a number of missing sidewalk links, totalling over 6 kilometres, and construction was advanced for locations totalling over 2 kilometres.
The remaining 4 kilometres of locations designed but not constructed were funded by an additional $13.6 million approved as part of the 2023-2026 Capital Budget.
The new 2023-2026 funding allowed the City to continue plan, design and construct more sidewalk connections throughout the city, totalling approximately 7 kilometres of new connections. These connections are currently being reviewed for feasibility before advancing through planning and design.
