People in British Columbia’s northern-most region will benefit from investments in infrastructure that strengthen their local economy, with support from the Government of B.C.
The Northern Rockies Regional Municipality will receive $10 million to invest in efficient, modern infrastructure. This will help grow the region into a complete service centre that supports industrial activity and economic development through natural resource industries.
This long-term agreement funds critical infrastructure necessary to support economic development for people living in the Northern Rockies region. Projects supported through this infrastructure funding include significant sewer and airport improvements, road and drainage works, and water and solid waste projects.
This is the fourth year the region will be supported by the Province, as part of its 20-year Infrastructure Development Contribution Agreement with the B.C. government.
- The funding from the agreement provides benefits to the B.C. economy, including oil and gas development.
- Northern Rockies Regional Municipality owns and operates community infrastructure valued at nearly $200 million, including water, wastewater and storm water systems, building and facilities, vehicles and equipment, roads and the Northern Rockies Regional Airport.
