Posted in: ,

TAHLTAN – New Democrat MLA Nathan Cullen is announcing provincial funding to support projects for building and upkeep of tourism infrastructure across B.C., including in the Stikine Region

“We are grateful to live in such a spectacular part of British Columbia, with so many incredible communities” says Nathan Cullen, MLA for Stikine. “This investment honours and celebrates  that privilege. I can’t wait to see the Tahltan signage project in action and furthering our path to reconciliation.”

The Tahltan Central Government is receiving $1 million for their Tāłtān signage project.

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.
