(businesspress24) - DELTA, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/30/15 -- Western Economic Diversification Canada

Today, the Honourable Kerry-Lynne D. Findlay, Minister of National Revenue and Member of Parliament for Delta-Richmond East, on behalf of the Honourable Michelle Rempel, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification, announced support of $500,000 for the Corporation of Delta to rehabilitate the historic Delta Municipal Hall, under the Government of Canada''s Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program.

In Economic Action Plan 2015, the Government of Canada announced further support for communities with the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program. Thanks to a commitment of $150 million, communities from coast to coast to coast will see support for improvements to local infrastructure, creating a lasting legacy as Canada prepares to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017.

The Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program will help fund renovations, expansions and rehabilitations to existing infrastructure that provides community and cultural benefits for the public. The Program represents one of several infrastructure-related initiatives that the Government of Canada has undertaken to generate well-being and prosperity across Canada.

"Cultural institutions that aim to promote the distinct history of a time, space or people, are pillars to a successful and continually improving community. The rehabilitations to the Delta Municipal Hall will ensure that this important part of history is preserved for generations to come while helping to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation."

"Investing in the monuments of our past helps us move forward in our changing world with the comfort of knowing that these monuments will stand tall for generations to come, reminding us of who we are. This funding will not only support rehabilitation of the historic Municipal Hall building in Ladner Village, it will enrich the cultural life of our community, too. On behalf of Delta Council, I commend Honourable Michelle Rempel, the Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification and our MP, Kerry-Lynne Findlay, for being the voice of our community and pursuing the Government of Canada to secure their ongoing dedication to the preservation of Delta''s heritage."
