The Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency is cutting core funding to some regional economic development groups across Atlantic Canada.

ACOA Minister Bernard Valcourt confirmed the decision earlier today firstly in a letter, and then later issued as a press release.

The agencies affected in Cape Breton are the Cape Breton County Economic Development Authority and Strait Highlands Regional  Development Authority.
