Government of Canada investing across British Columbia to revitalize community spaces and grow vibrant communities

Monday, July 4 – Cranbrook, B.C. – Pacific Economic Development Canada

Shared public spaces are the heart of communities across Canada. They bring together people of all ages and abilities, supporting businesses and stimulating local economies. In Cranbrook, like so many places across Canada, the community is ready to welcome back residents and visitors alike to vibrant parks and public spaces.

The Government of Canada recognizes that many well-loved spaces have laid dormant while Canadians have taken precautions to stay safe. Upgrading exisiting community infrastructure and building new public assets will help Canadian cities and towns provide better access to recreational programs and facilities while boosting their economic vitality.

Today, the Honourable Harjit S. Sajjan, Minister of International Development and Minister responsible for the Pacific Economic Development Agency of Canada (PacifiCan), announced an investment of $184,750 through the Canada Community Revitalization Fund (CCRF) for the City of Cranbrook.

This funding will allow the City of Cranbrook to revitalize Confederation Park by improving existing amenities and constructing new ones. The project includes upgrading trails, creating a parking area and wildlife viewing tower, building a dock and washroom facilities, and installing bilingual signage and wayfinding.

The CCRF was launched in June 2021. It is providing $500 million over two years for Canada’s regional development agencies (RDAs) to invest in projects that build and improve community infrastructure. The Government of Canada is committed to rejuvenating public spaces to make them safer, greener, and more accessible. This will stimulate local economies, create jobs, and improve the quality of life for Canadians.
