New community programs overview

September 17, 2020

In 2018, in the wake of changing community and economic dynamics in central and northern B.C., Northern Development embarked on the process of modernizing our community development programs.

At Northern Development, our mission is to stimulate economic growth through strategic and leveraged investments that build a strong and diversified economy in the region. This mission is reflected in each of the new community development programs being introduced to our service area.

These new programs build on the successes of our now retired Community Halls and Recreation Facilities and Economic Diversification programs and introduces improvements. The launch of these programs bring with them an expansion of eligible projects, increase in funding thresholds and continued support of regional priorities that enhance our quality of life and make this region such a desirable place to live and visit.
