Ted Falk, Member of Parliament for Provencher, is reminding organizations in Provencher that the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program (CIP 150) deadline is June 22, 2016 at 3pm.

CIP 150 is part of Canada 150 Celebrates, the Government of Canada’s celebration of our country’s 150th anniversary of Confederation. Budget 2016 provided an additional $150 million over two years to Canada‚Äôs Regional Development Agencies to deliver further community funding across the country, starting in 2016-17, with Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD) being responsible for administering the program in Western Canada.

“Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017 is set to be an exceptional year for Canadians and their country,” said Falk. “I would like to encourage local organizations to submit their online applications for improvements to their community infrastructure.”

The Government of Canada will invest in projects that seek to renovate, expand and improve existing community infrastructure.

WD, on behalf of the Government of Canada, is delivering this second call for proposals under CIP 150 in Western Canada beginning May 24th, 2016. Applications must be submitted by June 22nd, 2016 at 3pm CST.
