The Yukon government has awarded more than $1 million to ten Yukon community organizations for projects that contribute to infrastructure development and community well-being.

“The Government of Yukon is pleased to support projects that enhance existing community infrastructure or contribute to the development of new infrastructure that will provide health-related benefits for Yukon communities.” Minister of Economic Development Stacey Hassard said.

The Copper Ridge Neighbourhood Association will receive $157,000 for the development of an all-season, multi-activity community park. The association hopes the park will bring the community closer together through active and healthy living.

“The Copper Ridge Neighbourhood Association is excited to receive this funding to develop Winze Park. Through input from residents, the park features will focus on community building through family oriented activities, including a four-season surface, fitness equipment and a track designed for young children,” Copper Ridge Neighbourhood Association president Josh Clark said.

The Food Bank Society of Yukon has been awarded nearly $90,000 to complete building renovations, which include redesigning the welcome room, improving the warehouse and dividing the space into two units. When completed, the Boys and Girls Club will occupy part of the redesigned space, providing a home for that organization as well.

“None of this work would be possible without the continued support of the Yukon government and the Community Development Fund,” said Stu Mackay, executive director of the organization. “From the initial start-up funding, to the support for the purchase of the building and now with these renovations, the Yukon government has been an excellent partner in assisting us to provide emergency food to those in need. The feedback from the Boys and Girls Club, our clients, volunteers and staff has been very positive.”

These ten community projects will provide more than 7,000 hours of employment to about 60 people.
