For Bilingual Municipalities’ Community Projects, The Government of Manitoba is Investing more than $15 Million

The Manitoba Government is investing money in different community areas throughout this summer. One of the projects that the Manitoba government is investing in will be the support of community projects that will take place in various bilingual municipalities throughout Manitoba. 

The investment money is from the Sustainable Communities (BSC) and the Urban and Hometown Green Team (GT); moreover, the fifteen million dollars will be invested in more than five hundred bilingual municipalities’ projects including arena renovations, parks, and more.

Some key projects receiving funding in different bilingual municipalities include the renovation of the local arena in St. Malo, the St. Adolphe civic site project, which seeks to create a new community and event space in the town, and the Vermette Park master plan project which plans to rejuvenate the Vermette Park in the St. Vital neighbourhood of Winnipeg.

The minister in charge of francophone affairs announced that “Supporting sustainable projects in bilingual municipalities stimulates economic growth both within the local communities and throughout the province as a whole, while also enhancing the quality of life of Manitoba residents,.these investments support community efforts to rebuild and further develop resilience following the COVID-19 pandemic.”

He continued by saying, “The hard work and dedication of individuals and organizations in Manitoba’s bilingual municipalities are the driving force behind these community projects; our government is proud to support these projects as part of our comprehensive approach to promote the development and vitality of francophone communities.”

The funding and the support for the different projects are believed to help build flourishing, sustainable communities that provide a better and high-quality life for all Manitobans. Therefore, it won’t be long until Manitobans see positive changes throughout their province.
