Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program

In 2017, Canada will be celebrating the 150th anniversary of Confederation. To mark this special event, our Government launched a national program through Economic Action Plan 2015 that dedicates $150 million to celebrate Canada's history, heritage, values and future by reinvesting in community infrastructure across the country.

Economic Action Plan 2015

The Government is fulfilling its promise to balance the budget in 2015 and has paid down $37 billion in debt since 2006. Balanced budgets keep taxes low and ensure that taxpayer dollars are used to support the programs that Canadians depend on rather than paying interest costs. 

The Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) allows Canadians to set money aside in eligible investment vehicles and watch those savings grow tax-free throughout their lifetimes. TFSA savings can be used for any purpose, such as to purchase a car, renovate a house, start a small business or take a family vacation.

  Government Supports Local Business in White Rock
Russ and Steve Bird discussed the new technology developed by Fluvial Systems Research near the Nicomekl River. This technology will eliminate the need for probes and instead use satellite images to reveal water quality of shallow bodies of waters.  

Our Government is proud to support local businesses across our nation. Public Works and Government Services Canada has awarded a $542,643 contract to Fluvial Systems Research Inc. of White Rock, British Columbia, under the Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP) for its Spaceborne Water Quality Assessment technique.

Fluvial Systems Research Inc. has developed a new cutting-edge technique that extracts information about water quality in small, shallow rivers using imagery from a new high-resolution satellite. The innovative technique allows for daily water monitoring and provides water resource officials with vital information in the event of water contamination in rivers and streams. Officials can rapidly identify sources of contamination and take comprehensive precautionary measures to ensure sustainable management of water resources. The Spaceborne Water Quality Assessment technique is cost-effective as it does not require crews to access remote bodies of water. The innovation will be tested by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.

Several hundred people attended the 4th Annual 50+ EXPO on Saturday, May 9th in White Rock. Over 60 organizations and businesses were present, including representatives from home care, legal, fitness, security, local and national government, investment, travel, safety, insurance, real estate, hobby, health, and hearing services, among many others. 

The purpose of the 50+ EXPO is to provide information and resources to those over the age of 50 in our community.

Russ noticed that there is a real demand for information on a lot of programs and services that are available to retirees, and having the opportunity to ask questions of a knowledgeable representative is greatly valued. That is what first inspired Russ to start hosting these EXPOs.

Vendors generously donated over $7,000 in prizes, and McDoanld's Restaurants provided free coffee and cookies.
