Quebec and Ontario are calling on the federal government to increase infrastructure funding because of the slower rate of economic recovery and job creation in Eastern Canada.

Premier Phillippe Couillard and Ontario's Kathleen Wynne say they are looking for improved and stable funding that allows provinces to determine their own infrastructure investment priorities.

The two leaders met in Quebec City today and also discussed climate change as well as trade between the two provinces.

They also agreed to hold a joint cabinet meeting by the end of the year.

Wynne says such a get-together would be the fourth of its kind between leaders of the two provinces.
