Canada and Newfoundland and Labrador invest in building safer communities on the Great Northern Peninsula
“Investing in improved road networks and reliable drinking water is essential to building healthy and safe communities. Upgrading roadways not only provides a more secure means of travel but also helps to prevent flooding, which in turn protects infrastructure. Improving access to clean drinking water benefits residents’ health and also supports sustainability. In addition, these projects will provide employment as we recover from the economic effects of the pandemic.”
Gudie Hutchings, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Women and Gender Equality and Rural Economic Development on behalf of the Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities
“Our government is collaborating with federal and municipal partners on these projects to enhance communities in Newfoundland and Labrador. We are pleased to contribute more than $944,000 for upgrades in the towns of Conche, Port aux Choix, Port Saunders, Raleigh, St. Anthony, St. Lunaire-Griquet and Forrester’s Point that will improve communities and the quality of life for residents.”
The Honourable Christopher Mitchelmore, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour, and Member of the House of Assembly for St. Barbe–L’Anse aux Meadows
