Communities in Antigonish County Receive Funding for Clean Energy and Active Transportation Projects

The province is helping to reduce emissions in Paqtnkek Mi’kmaw Nation and Antigonish by investing in three new clean energy and active transportation projects.

Health and Wellness Minister Randy Delorey, on behalf of Energy and Mines Minister Derek Mombourquette, announced today, Feb. 14, over $104,000 for three projects under the Low Carbon Communities Program.

We are excited to be part of this joint initiative with Chief Prosper and his team at Paqtnkek. The support from the LCC fund allows us to explore how we increase options for low carbon energy delivery. We hope to look for solutions that build on current practices and policies and identify new options for community members. We want to try new technology, connect with traditional practices while connecting with local schools and businesses for training and service development possibilities. Low Carbon Communities allows us see what is possible.
~Owen McCarron, Warden, Municipality of the
County of Antigonish
