Ontario is partnering under the BIF initiative with the federal government on four other Niagara area projects valued at $115 million relating to the Queenston-Lewiston Bridge and QEW along the frontier in northern Niagara, including:
Ontario is finalizing a joint Bi-National Strategy with New York State that will formalize processes for addressing border related issues in Niagara.
Ontario supports the Peace Bridge pilot project to examine enhancements to border processing under the concept of shared border management. (The pilot project is currently under way by US and Canadian federal governments in partnership with the Peace Bridge Authority.)
The Province supports the Peace Bridge's current environmental study process to examine alternatives to improve this important border crossing, and views the expansion at the existing location as a preferred alternative given its direct connection to the existing terminus of the QEW.
