DELTA, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/19/13 -- Today, Kerry-Lynne Findlay, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Justice and Member of Parliament for Delta-Richmond East, on behalf of the Honourable Lynne Yelich, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification, announced support for the Corporation of Delta 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 across Canada," said MP Findlay. "By making these investments in local infrastructure, we are helping boost economic activity and maintain a high quality of life for Canadians."
The Harper Government's investment of $250,000 will support the Corporation of Delta in repurposing Hawthorne Grove Park's Harris Barn into a community facility available for social gatherings and meetings. Funding will support the installation of a fire suppression system, enhanced lighting, a mobility lift, kitchen service area, and signage. Upgrades to the facility's sewage and water system, parking, and landscaping will also be completed.
"We are grateful for the Government of Canada's support towards the preservation and transformation of this historic barn into a community amenity," said Delta Mayor Lois E. Jackson. "The Harris Barn celebrates Delta's agricultural industry which remains an integral part of our community."
In Economic Action Plan 2012, the Harper Government announced further support to help communities across the country modernize their infrastructure. Our Government committed $150 million over two years for the Fund. The Fund supports projects that look to improve existing community infrastructure accessible for use by the public, such as community centres, recreational buildings, local arenas, cultural and other community facilities.
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.
