Today the Honourable Lynne Yelich, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification, announced one-time support that will provide Regina’s RCMP Heritage Centre with the time it needs to develop a sustainable business plan to ensure its future operations.
The RCMP Heritage Centre is a treasure to all Canadians and one of Saskatchewan’s foremost tourism and historical attractions,” said Minister of State Lynne Yelich. “
Our Government is providing this one-time support so that they can develop a longer term strategy that will ensure the Centre’s continued operation and success in the future.”
The Government of Canada will contribute $2.1 million over the next two years to provide the Centre with the time and resources it needs to develop a longer term plan that is based on sound business principles and that will stabilize its operation in future years. This facility is a unique, world-class interpretive centre and serves as a Canadian and international tourism destination to teach visitors about the RCMP’s heritage, current operations and training.
This federal investment is being provided through Western Economic Diversification Canada, under the Western Diversification Program.
