Ottawa is going to spend $1.7 billion to help clean up orphaned wells.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says dealing with abandoned oil and gas wells is good for the environment, landowners and for the thousands of workers needed to do the job.

He's also announced the government is creating a $700 fund to cut methane emissions.

In addition, $962 million in funding is in the works for regional development agencies to help more businesses.
