Our government is strengthening our communities through recently announced Building Sustainable Communities (BSC) funding. I am proud to say that our constituency of La Vérendrye is receiving $1,030,731 across fourteen projects.

These projects range from facility upgrades, to upgrading our community rinks and halls, and creating active transportation plans. This funding will go a long way towards improving our communities so that they can continue to grow and remain excellent locations to live, work and play.
