Prairies Economic Development Canada

Regina, Saskatchewan – PrairiesCan

Canadians are once again gathering, connecting with friends, family, and neighbours in their communities and their downtowns. To help encourage people to gather safely and boost local economies, the Government of Canada is investing in revitalizing community infrastructure across Saskatchewan. Modern infrastructure and amenities create vibrant communities where people want to visit, live, and support the local economy.

Today, at the RCMP Heritage Centre in Regina, the Honourable Daniel Vandal, Minister for PrairiesCan, announced federal support of $12,839,265 for 56 Saskatchewan recreation and community revitalization initiatives. This funding will support new and improved recreational amenities like playgrounds, museums, community centres and unique outdoor experiences that will provide visitors and residents with opportunities to connect and explore Saskatchewan. Over $2.9 million will go to the RCMP Heritage Centre to develop new programs and visitor experiences, and support the Centre’s pursuit of national museum status.

Funding for the remaining 55 projects is provided through the Canada Community Revitalization Fund, administered by PrairiesCan, and will help Saskatchewan communities enhance their recreational amenities and infrastructure.
