Frequently Asked Questions

Why was only a small section of work done in 2021?
The project was a direct result of a new Municipal Stimulus Funding Program from the Government of Alberta, which was aimed at putting Albertans back to work following the first pandemic closure. The amount of funding Canmore received is $1,663,216, which is allocated on a per-capita basis. Funds had to be spent by end of 2021. This project was one of two that were put forward for these funds to be allocated towards. The funding only allowed a small section of work to be completed.
