LOGAN LAKE, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/18/13 -- Dan Albas, Member of Parliament for Okanagan-Coquihalla, on behalf of the Honourable Lynne Yelich, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification, announced federal funding that has been provided for upgrades to the Logan Lake Recreation Centre under the Harper Government's Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund (CIIF).
"Modernization of the Logan Lake Recreation Centre will improve the safety of the facility and enhance local community services," said MP Albas. "With today's investment, our Government is demonstrating our commitment to creating jobs, growth and long-term economic prosperity."
The Harper Government's investment of $138,300 will enhance the services provided by the District of Logan Lake's Recreation Centre, and will make it safer and easier to access for people of all physical abilities. Specifically, the funding will construct new entry ways and install an elevator to the second floor.
"Logan Lake's demographics makes it one of the oldest communities in B.C., and with this much needed funding from Western Economic Diversification Canada and the Federal Government, we will be able to increase the accessibility and functionality of our Recreation Centre for years to come," said his Worship, Mayor Marlon Dosch, District of Logan Lake.
In Economic Action Plan 2012, the Harper Government announced further support to help communities across the country modernize their infrastructure. Our Government committed $150 million over two years for the Fund. The Fund supports projects that look to improve existing community infrastructure accessible for use by the public, such as community centres, recreational buildings, local arenas, cultural and other community facilities.
Since 2006, the Harper Government, through WD, has invested in job-creating small- and medium-sized businesses, aerospace, marine and defence industries, and supported innovative entrepreneurs in pursuing emerging markets. By continuing to promote new economic opportunities, WD is helping to create jobs, economic growth, and long-term prosperity.
