Ottawa to help renovate community buildings in time for Canada’s 150th birthday

TRURO, N.S. — The federal government is making $150 million available to renovate and expand public buildings that provide community and cultural benefits.

The program announced today by Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Truro, N.S., is expected to help 1,800 projects through federal regional economic development agencies.

Projects that get funding will be completed by the end of the 2017 construction season for the 150th celebration of Confederation.

Buildings that are eligible include community centres, Royal Canadian Legion branches, museums, parks, trails, libraries and recreational facilities.
