Coal communities get extra boost from province
15 Mar 2018
CTV NEWS. As the province works to phase out pollution from coal-fired generating plants by 2030, it’s providing funding to communities impacted by the transition.
Twelve projects in 17 communities will be getting support from the Coal Community Transition Fund, which is about $5 million altogether.
“We want coal workers and coal communities to know that our government has your back,” Minister of Economic Development Deron Bilous said. “When coal communities told us they want support to diversify their local economies, we worked with the local leaders to support their projects.”
