4 northern Manitoba First Nations get money for school renovations
The federal minister for aboriginal affairs says four northern Manitoba First Nations are getting funding for new schools or renovations to existing ones.
Bernard Valcourt made the announcement in Winnipeg today.
He said the government doesn't know when the work will be done or how much it will cost.
The money is to come from a $500-million education infrastructure fund.
Valcourt suggested that building or renovating all at once makes sense.
He said it will save money on construction materials and shipping costs.
The Bunibonibee, God's Lake, Manto Sipi and Wasagamack First Nations are the recipients of the federal cash.
