City of Nanaimo Gets $1,400,000.00


The City of Nanaimo will benefit from nearly $1.4 million in provincial funding to plant trees in Maffeo-Sutton Park and invest in public safety projects across the city.

The City of Nanaimo will receive:

  • $1,311,150 as the first instalment of the Province’s Strategic Community Investment Fund, a restructuring of provincial grant programs to give communities more funding sooner, including the Traffic Fine Revenue Sharing program to enhance policing and community-based safety programs.
  • $50,000 from the Trees for Tomorrow program for the Maffeo-Sutton Park Improvement project.
  • $23,110 from the Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program, equal to 100 per cent of the carbon tax paid as one of the more than 175 communities that have signed the Climate Action Charter committing to becoming carbon neutral by 2012.

These investments are part of the Province’s commitment to help stimulate the economy, maintain stability and keep British Columbians working during the economic downturn.
