SALMON ARM, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/19/12 -- Today, Colin Mayes, Member of Parliament for Okanagan-Shuswap, on behalf of the Honourable Lynne Yelich, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification, announced federal funding for the Grandview Bench Recreation 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 MP Mayes. "By improving facilities such as this, we are helping to boost economic activity and maintain a high quality of life for Canadians."
Funding of almost $2,500 will help the Association purchase and install new lighting at Grandview Bench Community Hall. These new components will result increase the energy efficiency of the Hall by lowering electricity consumption.
"The Board at the Hall is most appreciative of this funding, without which we would have been unable to consider this project," stated Moya Petznick, President of the Grandview Bench Recreation Association. "Our Hall is a community focal point for many happy events, and our new lighting will be a vast improvement over the current outdated fluorescent fixtures."
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.
