NDP MLA Mitzi Dean says funding will support tourism in the West Shore

Posted in: ,

View Royal – New Democrat MLA Mitzi Dean is announcing provincial funding to support projects for building and upkeep of tourism infrastructure across B.C., including for the Craigflower Community Centre in the West Shore

“The Craigflower Community Centre is a wonderful place for people to gather, celebrate, and connect,” said Mitzi Dean, MLA for Esquimalt-Metchosin. “This funding will support the exciting work the Centre is doing as they continue to develop this new space for our community.”

The Victoria Highland Games Association received $325,000 for the Craigflower Community and Performing Arts Centre.

Today’s investment is a $30 million investment on top of the already $15 million allocated to tourism infrastructure projects for 2023, to continue our government’s support for a strong, diverse tourism industry throughout B.C.

This funding will help support a more sustainable year-round tourism economy for B.C. that attracts people from all over the globe. The over 90 projects funded provincially are shovel-ready and will be able to hit the ground running thanks to this funding.
