Government of Canada invests $54 million in six public safety projects across Northern Saskatchewan
“Prevention is at the heart of creating safer communities. By investing in projects to prevent crime and mitigate the impacts of climate change, we are building community capacity and resilience, and we are better positioning communities to better withstand, combat and recover from future natural disasters.”
- The Honourable Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness
“Our government is committed to protecting our critical infrastructure. This is especially true on the Highway 55 corridor where there is a lack of available detour routes. Improvements to Highway 55 will also boost our economy, especially in the forestry sector.”
- Fred Bradshaw, MLA for Carrot River Valley on behalf of the Honourable Lori Carr, Minister of Highways and Infrastructure
The Government of Canada has made up to $94 million available over five years through the National Crime Prevention Strategy to develop inclusive, diverse and culturally adapted crime prevention projects across Canada. These projects will use new and innovative approaches to crime prevention that seek to expand partnerships, engage more Indigenous communities, and include more experts in addressing the gaps and challenges in reaching vulnerable communities.
The Government of Canada and Saskatchewan Power Corporation will each contribute $19,802,475 toward the electrical distribution circuit project.
The Government of Canada is contributing $20,493,825 towards the fuel mitigation project.
The Disaster Mitigation and Adaptation Fund (DMAF) is a $2-billion, 10-year program to help communities build the infrastructure they need to better withstand natural hazards such as floods, wildfires, earthquakes and droughts.
