55 Municipal Economic Enhancement Program Projects Approved To Move Ahead

Released on June 22, 2020

$150 Million Program To Benefit Cities, Towns, Villages, RMs and Northern Communities

Today, Government Relations Minister Lori Carr announced the first 55 projects with more than $7.4 million of provincial investment are approved and can move forward under the Municipal Economic Enhancement Program (MEEP).

“Through investments like the new MEEP, which focuses on municipal projects and initiatives which will help residents get back to work, Saskatchewan will recover from the devastating economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Carr said.  “It is exciting to see communities taking advantage of this program by submitting a variety of projects that will improve their local infrastructure, capital assets to provide services, and ultimately strengthen their communities.”

The $150 million MEEP 2020 is a key component of the Government of Saskatchewan’s $7.5 billion, two-year capital plan to build a strong province and stimulate its economic recovery from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Highlights of some the recently approved projects include:

  • Local roadway improvements for the City of North Battleford
  • A new community hall for the Northern Village of Île-à-la-Crosse
  • New water wells for the Town of Balcarres
  • Water and grid road projects for the RM of Stonehenge No. 73
  • Culverts, streets and dust control projects for the Village of Ridgedale

Each project and its schedule is managed by the municipality receiving funding.  All MEEP 2020 funding must be used by March 31, 2022.
