FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. -Three Peace Region non-profit groups will receive nearly $30,000 from BC Hydro through the Site C project’s Generate Opportunities (GO) Fund.

From the $800,000 fund, this is the ninth time grants have been awarded, which was established in September 2016. To date, $316,489 has been distributed to 34 projects.
