Saskatchewan received nearly $4.4 million in infrastructure funding on Tuesday morning.
The funding was announced by Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, on behalf of the government of Canada.
The money comes from the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program as part of Canada’s 150th anniversary celebrations.
Goodale says there will be 62 projects across Saskatchewan and they were chosen based on their cultural and recreational impact in their communities.
“The communities will have facilities, they’ll have amenities that will provide interesting life skills and sporting and recreation opportunities,” said Goodale.
The investment will support the renovation, expansion and general improvement to facilities, parks and cultural projects.
Each of the local organizations receiving funding will be matching the federal contribution.
