The Co-op Community Spaces Program has made $1 million available for capital projects in Western Canada dedicated to recreation, environmental conservation and urban agriculture.

The Whiskey Jack Nordic Ski Club received $61,000 in 2019 from the Fort St. John Co-op through the program for its day lodge in Beatton Park. Construction on the lodge is expected to finish this month.

“Now more than ever, we’re proud to invest in projects that will preserve nature and create places where we can come together, build relationships and support one another,” said Pam Skotnitsky, Vice President of Strategy at Federated Co-operatives Limited.

Co-op Community Spaces was launched in 2015 to help protect, beautify and improve local spaces. The program has provided a total of $10.5 million to 147 local projects, including parks, greenhouses and sports fields.

Registered non-profit organizations, registered charities or community service co-operatives can apply for funding online between February 1st to March 1st. Funding between $25,000 and $150,000 is available per project.
