Economic development agencies in the northern interior have received a federal boost.
Initiatives Prince George and Northern Development Initiative Trust are both benefiting from the Invest Canada-Community Initiatives program to the tune of $16,800 and $50,000, respectively.
"The substantial investments for both Northern Development Initiative Trust and Initiatives Prince George is most welcome news," said Cariboo-Prince George MP Dick Harris. "Our communities in the Interior will benefit through economic development initiatives while seeking to attract foreign investment at the same time."
The funding program was designed to help communities, organizations and economic development agencies across the country attract, retain and expand foreign direct investment.
