The Ministry manages the infrastructure development commitments of the province’s $300 million capital infrastructure initiative - the Sports, Culture Tourism Partnership Program as well as one-time capital year-end investments.

The Ministry also manages and delivers the Recreational Infrastructure Canada Program in Ontario (RInC) - a $390 million federal/provincial infrastructure program intended to provide timely, targeted economic stimulus through investments in existing recreational infrastructure.
