In a bid to help encourage people to gather safely and boost local economies, the Canadian government is investing in revitalizing community infrastructure across Saskatchewan.
According to a press release, on Wednesday, at the RCMP Heritage Centre in Regina, the Honorable Daniel Vandal, Minister for PrairiesCan, announced CA$12,839,265 funding for 56 Saskatchewan recreation and community revitalization initiatives.
The funding will help support the development of new and improved recreational facilities like playgrounds, museums, community centers, and unique outdoor experiences that will provide visitors and residents with opportunities to connect and explore Saskatchewan.
More than CA$2.9 million will go to the RCMP Heritage Centre to develop new programs and visitor experiences and support the Centre’s pursuit of national museum status.
Funding for the remaining 55 projects is provided through the Canada Community Revitalization Fund, administered by PrairiesCan, which will help Saskatchewan communities enhance their recreational amenities and infrastructure.
“Local community and recreation spaces are where people gather, make connections, learn local history, or take in a quiet walk in the park. Our government is continuing to make investments that transform community infrastructure into modern gathering places for people of all ages and abilities through the Canada Community Revitalization Fund. We’re proud to work with the RCMP Heritage Centre to revitalize and enhance features of the Centre that will attract more visitors. Here in Regina, and across Saskatchewan, these locally-led projects are bringing people together and revitalizing infrastructure for residents and visitors to experience and enjoy for years to come,” said Honourable Daniel Vandal, Minister for PrairiesCan.
