SAINT-JOSEPH-DE-LEPAGE, QC, April 28, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED)
Key local stakeholders have long been asking for concrete, sustainable measures to improve community and recreational infrastructure. The Government of Canada is proud to invest in projects such as this one by the Corporation CONCERT'Action lepageois, which contribute to the strength and vitality of all regions of the country.
Acting on behalf of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for CED, Rémi Massé, Member of Parliament for Avignon–La Mitis–Matane–Matapédia, announced that the Corporation CONCERT'Action lepageois has been granted $29,310 in financial assistance, in the form of a non-repayable contribution, for the renovation and improvement of the Saint-Joseph-de-Lepage community centre.
Built in 1880, the Saint-Joseph-de-Lepage community centre is used by residents for a variety of recreational, social and family activities. The funding awarded through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program (CIP150) will enable the Corporation CONCERT'Action lepageois to replace the building's cladding, insulation, windows and exterior entries. The funding will help ensure the sustainability of the community centre which, once it has been renovated, will benefit residents by contributing to their well-being.
CED is one of the six regional development agencies under the responsibility of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development.
"Through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program, we are strengthening communities across the country, making them even more dynamic and united than ever. I am happy to see that the residents of Saint-Joseph-de-Lepage are now going to benefit from the renovation of their community centre."
Rémi Massé, Member of Parliament for Avignon–La Mitis–Matane–Matapédia

The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister responsible for CED
"The Corporation CONCERT'Action lepageois is proud to present the results of its efforts in approaching those responsible for our sector's economic development.
