Today, Mark Warawa, Member of Parliament for Langley, on behalf of the Honourable Michelle Rempel, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification, announced support of $455,000 for three projects under the Government of Canada’s Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program.
In Economic Action Plan 2015, the Government of Canada announced further support for communities with the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program. Thanks to a commitment of $150 million, communities from coast to coast to coast will see support for improvements to local infrastructure, creating a lasting legacy as Canada prepares to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017.
The Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program will help fund renovations, expansions and rehabilitations to existing infrastructure that provides community and cultural benefits for the public. The Program represents one of several infrastructure-related initiatives that the Government of Canada has undertaken to generate well-being and prosperity across Canada.
- The national Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program provides $150 million over two years to be delivered by regional development agencies across the country.
- The three projects being announced today total $455,000 in funding under the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program, and will help improve existing community infrastructure in the Township of Langley.
“Parks, museums, and other public spaces contribute to the strength of our communities, and by helping to renew them we are ensuring that they will be in good condition for years to come. Through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program, we celebrate the upcoming 150th anniversary of Confederation while creating jobs and economic growth.”
