MINISTER MACKAY ANNOUNCES INVESTMENTS IN COMMUNITY INFRASTRUCTURE UPGRADES IN CAPE BRETON

SYDNEY (NS) – April 22, 2013 As part of the Government’s Economic Action Plan, the Honourable Peter MacKay, Minister of National Defence and Regional Minister for Nova Scotia, today announced support for seven community infrastructure projects in Cape Breton on behalf of the Honourable Gail Shea, Minister of National Revenue and Minister for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency.

"Our Government continues to invest in infrastructure improvements to address the needs of our communities and provide for economic growth," said Minister MacKay. "By improving community facilities in Cape Breton, we are helping to improve the quality of life for residents, boost local economic activity and create jobs". 

The Government of Canada’s combined investment of $178,369 supports the upgrading of the following community recreation facilities in Cape Breton:

• The St. Agnes Home and School Association in New Waterford benefits from $51,500 in assistance to conduct significant playground improvements.

• The Eskasoni Band Council receives $50,999 to upgrade an existing baseball field.

• Ski Cape Smokey in Ingonish receives $23,000 to upgrade the ski lodge building and to acquire    equipment for the facility.

• The Conseil des arts de Cheticamp receives $11,000 to upgrade its performance facility.

• The Grand Mira Community Society benefits from $16,870 to expand its community centre.

• The Community Development Association of Millville benefits from $17,000 for renovations to its community hall.

• The Birch Grove Community Centre will upgrade its facility with $8,000 in assistance.

In Economic Action Plan 2012, the Government of Canada announced further support to help communities across the country modernize their infrastructure, committing $150 million over two years for the Fund. The Fund supports projects that look to improve existing community infrastructure, such as community centres, recreational buildings, local arenas, cultural and other community facilities.

The Fund supports, on a cost-shared basis, repairs and improvements to existing community infrastructure that is accessible for use by the public. Recipients may receive contributions of up to $1 million and must leverage a minimum of 50 per cent of funding from other sources.

The Government remains focused on four priorities, as outlined by the Prime Minister, that Canadians care most about: their families, the safety of our streets and communities, their pride in being a citizen of this country, and of course, their personal financial security.
