Local MP Russ Hiebert announced $330,000 in funding to support three projects through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program, today at the Royal Canadian Legion.
The Canada 150 funding will upgrade existing signage to city parks and trails in White Rock; will help with undertaking capital improvements to the Sunnyside Hall in Surrey; and will support upgrades to the Cloverdale Legion.
The Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program is just one component of federal infrastructure funding. The New Building Canada Fund is a 10-year, $53 billion program designed to improve Canada’s highways, water treatment, public transit and cultural facilities. These investments in infrastructure help Canadian companies reach global markets, protect our environment and support our cities and communities, as well as creating needed jobs and economic growth.
“As Canada prepares to celebrate its 150th anniversary of Confederation, our Government is helping to renovate, expand and rehabilitate existing infrastructure that provides community and cultural benefits for Canadians. With our support through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program, Canadians from coast to coast to coast will benefit from improved and enhanced public spaces and facilities” said Mr. Hiebert.
