CDC $47,000 closer to expansion


Prince George/Peace River MP Jay Hill announced on Thursday the Child Development Center will receive 47 thousand dollars from the Federal Government.

The money will go towards the building’s new Life Skills Centre, an environment where children with disabilities can learn new skills.

Hill says around 600 people with disabilities in the community will benefit from the project.

The money comes from the Enabling Accessibility Fund. Over the next three years 45 million dollars will be distributed to organizations throughout Canada.

Senator Richard Neufeld celebrated the announcement and encourages the community to contribute to the CDC.
