The town of Whitecourt has been awarded $204,000 for a grant to help with public transit.
“Investments in infrastructure help build a stronger and more resilient Alberta–connecting people, creating good jobs for the middle class, and building our economy and our communities for the future. Today’s announcement will ensure residents of Whitecourt have access to efficient public transit that gets them where they need to go while contributing to clean economic growth. By providing long-term, predictable funding for infrastructure, the Government of Canada is helping to meet the needs of Albertans and making sure that our communities remain among the best places in the world to live.”
– Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities
“This is great news for my constituents. Whitecourt is a growing northern community and these funds will go a long way in helping them respond to that growth. I am proud to say that the province has invested significant funds over the last few years in Whitecourt’s transit system. I am glad to see federal support for these types of rural projects as well.”
– Oneil Carlier, MLA for Whitecourt-Ste. Anne
The grant money will go towards building new transit networks and service extensions. The money is a partnership between the Federal and Provincial Government.
