Alberta’s government is distributing over $1.1 million to provide capital funding for municipalities in the Fort McMurray-Lac La Biche constituency.
This funding will help the constituency build and revitalize local infrastructure and create lasting prosperity through the Canada Community-Building Fund.
“Alberta’s Recovery Plan has helped our communities gain jobs and countless opportunities for growth. Investments into vital resources and the safety of our roads and water treatment is just one more example of our success in getting Alberta back on its feet post-pandemic.”
David Hanson—MLA for Bonnyville-Cold Lake-St. Paul
