Today, Mike Kelloway, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard and Member of Parliament for Cape Breton—Canso, announced total investments of $62,822 through the Canada Community Revitalization Fund (CCRF) for two projects in Grand Mira South and D’Escousse. The announcements were made on behalf of the Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Minister of Official Languages and Minister responsible for ACOA.
This support will allow the Grand Mira Community Society and Lennox Passage Yacht Club to improve their facilities to promote social and physical activity in the region.
Further details are available in the backgrounder.
The CCRF was launched in June 2021. The Fund provides $500 million over two years to Canada’s regional development agencies (RDAs) to invest in shared and inclusive public spaces. The Government of Canada remains committed to investing in shared spaces to make them safer, greener and more accessible. This in turn will stimulate local economies, create jobs, and improve the quality of life for Canadians.
