I am pleased to announce $65,512.00 for community projects as part of our PC government’s Green Team funding. Our government is pleased to promote green projects across our entire province over the course of summer 2022. The projects in our community are part of a total $9 million to support the Green Team program this year.
I’m thrilled that these funds will provide program support to our community. These projects are a strong commitment to investing in our community and jobs for our youth.
This year the priorities of the Green Team program include community-based organizations and municipal governments that can offer full-time employment opportunities for youth, projects that support COVID-19 response and recovery efforts and projects that can demonstrate community need and partnerships.
The Green Team program funds 100% of wage costs for non-profit organizations, education authorities and NACCs and 50% of wage costs for municipalities on a cost-shared basis. These projects will promote green spaces, projects and tourism in the region, while also providing jobs and economic development in the area. Our government is proud to support important initiatives like Green Teams.
