BLACK CREEK, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/18/12 -- Today, the Honourable John Duncan, Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development, on behalf of the Honourable Lynne Yelich, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification, announced federal funding for the Black Creek Community Association under the Harper Government's Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund (CIIF).

"Our Government is committed to creating jobs, growth and long-term prosperity in our communities," said Minister Duncan. "By improving facilities such as this, we are helping to boost economic activity and maintain a high quality of life for Canadians."
Federal funding of $17,095 will go towards improvements to the Black Creek Community Centre. Project activities will include upgrades to the washrooms, main hall and kitchen; the installation of disability access mechanisms for main doors; and the replacement of ceiling panels. These improvements are important for Black Creek, as the Community Centre is used by all community members for a variety of purposes including meetings, administration, and gatherings.
"The Black Creek Community Centre (BCCA) has been an integral part of our rural community for well over 50 years," said Facilities Director Jerry Griffin. "As a non-profit, the BCCA has a strong foundation of volunteers and is truly 'owned' and driven by its members. Funding will help ensure the facilities are safe, welcoming and up-to-date; and reflect the pride and appreciation Black Creek residents have in their community centre."
CIIF supports, on a cost-shared basis, repairs and improvements to existing community infrastructure accessible to the public. Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD) is delivering the Fund in Western Canada with an allocation of $46.2 million over two years.
Since 2006, the Harper Government, through WD, has invested in job-creating, small and medium-sized businesses, aerospace, marine and defence industries, and supported innovative entrepreneurs in pursuing emerging markets. By continuing to promote new economic opportunities, WD is helping to create jobs, economic growth, and long-term prosperity.
