$3.1 million announced for four NWT infrastructure projects


More than $3.1 million will be distributed in joint funding to four infrastructure projects across the NWT.

MP Michael McLeod and MLA Caroline Cochrane made the announcement in Yellowknife yesterday.

The funding will help construct a new arena in Sachs Harbour, build a multi-purpose outdoor recreation facility in Tsiigehtchic, upgrade the existing Hamlet of Uluhaktok office, and construct a 6-bay garage to support the parking and storage of water and sewer trucks in Bechoko.

The Government of Canada will provide up to $2,338,000 for these four projects under the New Building Canada Plan’s Small Communities Fund.

The community governments will contribute the remaining $779,335 for the four projects, which have a total eligible cost of $3,117,335.
