Provinces announces $75 million Rural Dividend

The BC Government has announced a program to help out smaller communities struggling to transition their economies.

Speaking to delegates at the Union of BC Municipalities AGM, Premier Christy Clark says her government realizes that places like Quesnel and Houston are facing difficulties.

To help out Clark has committed up to $75 million dollars in the Rural Dividend over the next three years to help cities and towns with a population under 25,000.

Clark says the provincial government also needs to do a better job of sharing economic wealth across BC, including First Nations, where she says much of the resource economy of BC is generated.
