Victoria is providing more than $1.2 million in funding for more than a dozen projects in Thompson-Nicola Regional District communities.
“This funding supports the diverse needs of small communities throughout the province and the people who live in them,” Doug Donaldson, Minister of Forests and Lands, said in a press release.
“Our government is getting results for people in every region, creating jobs and enhancing everyday services and amenities for families around the province.”
The money, part of the B.C. Rural Dividend Program, will fund projects in Cook’s Ferry, Clearwater, Logan Lake, Merritt and Whispering Pines, among others.
Projects include multi-use pathways, economic development planning, recreation infrastructure upgrades and First Nations language education.
