Canada and British Columbia invest in infrastructure renewal at Langara College
Students, faculty and staff at Langara College will benefit from a $1.58-million investment that will improve the environmental sustainability of the campus and enhance learning conditions.
This joint federal-provincial funding was announced today by the Honourable Harjit S. Sajjan, Minister of National Defence, on behalf of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, and by the Honourable Andrew Wilkinson, B.C. Minister of Advanced Education.
Canada's Innovation Agenda aims to make this country a global centre for innovation one that creates jobs, drives growth across all industries and improves the lives of all Canadians. This investment exemplifies that vision in action.
The funding will support the replacement of two 1970-era, energy-intensive ventilation systems that are reaching the end of their useful life. The new fan systems will improve air distribution, reduce operating costs and improve energy consumption at Langara College.
