A: The project is estimated at $25 million, with the cost being distributed among landowners and municipalities of:

  • Bradford West Gwillimbury
  • King
  • Caledon
  • Newmarket
  • East Gwillimbury
  • New Tecumseth
  • Simcoe County
  • Ministry of Transportation

In 2008, the Services Board received a $10.2 million grant from the Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy’s Municipal Infrastructure Investment Initiative (MIII). This helped offset some of the cost allocated to the municipalities and landowners of the 65,000 acres within and surrounding the Holland Marsh. The balance was distributed amongst the Ministry of Transportation, the County of Simcoe, and OMAFRA.
