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

August 9, 2022 – Princeton, 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 Princeton, as in so many places across Canada, the community is ready to welcome back residents and visitors alike to a vibrant downtown core 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 existing 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 $750,000 through the Canada Community Revitalization Fund (CCRF) for the Town of Princeton.

This support will allow the Town of Princeton to revitalize the downtown core of the community, and to enhance a visitor centre and RV campground to welcome visitors back to the region. With the CCRF funding, various upgrades will be made including installing RV pads and an accessible washroom at a campground, a boardwalk at the visitors’ centre, and wheelchair-accessible sidewalks in the town centre.

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