A joint investment by the governments of Canada and British Columbia will hope to benefit 20 communities across British Columbia in order to help them improve their flood protection, as per Market Wire.
"Our Government is committed to strengthening our communities and protecting Canadians," said Honourable Lynne Yelich, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification. "We know that by investing in flood mitigation measures, we are delivering on our commitment to provide greater safety for residents, and significant economic benefits for British Columbia."
"The flood mitigation funding that communities across B.C. received today is another example of our Federal and Provincial government's ongoing commitment to ensuring communities like ours have access to the support they need," said City of Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman.
