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

August 10, 2022 – Williams Lake, 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 Williams Lake, as in so many places across Canada, the community is ready to welcome back residents and visitors alike to enhanced community facilities 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 $49,414 through the Canada Community Revitalization Fund (CCRF) for the Williams Lake Curling Club.

This support will allow the Williams Lake Curling Club to install an elevator at their facility. This upgrade will make the curling club more accessible and encourage local residents and visitors to enjoy the space. It will also allow the Williams Lake Curling Club to host more community events and inclusive programs, including adaptive curling.

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. As public health restrictions ease, the Government of Canada remains committed to investing in shared spaces to make them safer, greener and more accessible. This in turn will stimulate local economies, create jobs, and improve the quality of life for Canadians.
