SALMON ARM, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/20/13 -- Today, Colin Mayes, Member of Parliament for Okanagan-Shuswap, on behalf of the Honourable Lynne Yelich, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification, announced support to the City of Salmon Arm for improvements to the Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union (SASCU) Recreation Centre under the Harper Government's Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund (CIIF).

"I am proud to see Salmon Arm benefit from our Government's support for local infrastructure," said MP Mayes. "This investment will help create jobs, growth and will support the prosperity of the community for years to come."
The Harper Government's investment of $247,000 will enhance the services provided by the SASCU Recreation Centre and will create jobs. With the funding provided, the City of Salmon Arm will improve the Centre by replacing boilers, heat exchangers, change room lockers, pool filters and the deck drainage system. In addition, the centre will benefit from the installation of a UV disinfectant system and alarm control panel, as well as new doors, and windows.
Mayor Nancy Cooper is delighted that Salmon Arm is to benefit from CIIF. "The SASCU Recreation Centre is nearing its 25th year of operation. The building has been well maintained since its construction but many parts of the building are now beyond their original life expectancy. This grant will enable us to replace out dated systems with modern technology, greatly improving energy efficiency while implementing higher standards of safety and ensuring that the facility remains open and affordable for the residents of Salmon Arm."
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.
