Posted in: ,

NANOOSE – New Democrat MLA Adam Walker says that double the funding for B.C.’s newest economic diversification program will enable municipalities, First Nations and not-for-profit organizations to complete more projects in rural communities, including Nanoose.

“I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to the Nanoose Economic Development Corporation on moving forward with this project,” said Adam Walker, MLA for Parksville-Qualicum. “Funding this community planning project will offer opportunities for new jobs and further growth, and I am thrilled to see the REDIP program supporting initiatives like this.”

Nanoose is receiving $98,284.00 as part of the Rural Economic Diversification and Infrastructure Program (REDIP) to promote economic diversification, clean economy opportunities and infrastructure development in rural B.C.

The New Democrat government is investing $66 million this year to support over 200 local, rural projects. Building resilient economies is part of the Province’s work through the StrongerBC Economic Plan to build a strong and sustainable economy through clean and inclusive growth.
