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 Glenora Community Hall will undertake meaningful upgrades to its siding and asphalt. This hall is vital to Glenora and surrounding areas as it is the only facility capable of holding large events.
- In Western Canada, WD invested in projects that aim to rehabilitate or improve cultural and community infrastructure, helping communities to realize long-term growth and vibrancy for years to come.
"By strengthening our communities through investments in infrastructure such as the Glenora Community Hall, we are ensuring that Westman residents and their families can continue to benefit from improved public spaces and help to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation. By working together we are getting results!"
Larry Maguire, Member of Parliament for Brandon-Souris
