Table 3 presents the allocation formulas for each of the agreements between the federal states and the federal states. For their part, municipalities decide which projects should be given priority within established investment categories. To ensure greater financial flexibility, municipalities can issue bank loans and loans, and they can also pool resources. Eligible recipients are required to report annually on their use of the credits and compliance with the terms of their respective GTF agreements15.15 GTF payments are subject to GTF funding agreements that provide a framework of responsibility for allowing the Canadian government to make TWICe-yearLY GTF payments to signatories. The total amount is distributed per capita among the provinces, territories and First Nations, but a minimum amount of funding is guaranteed for the least populated areas and is set at 0.75% of total funding or $78 million over five years (see Table 2).14 The federal government makes GTF funds available to provincial and territorial governments, which in turn make allocations to municipalities under the terms of funding agreements.

In the case of such a request, Canada, British Columbia and UBCM agree to debate the application and any interim agreement to amend this agreement is concluded in accordance with Section 10.3 (Duration, Cessation, Review and Amendment).
