Partnership creates jobs, training and heritage/recreation assets along the Gold Rush/Spirit Trails corridor
(100 MILE HOUSE) Local organizations and government are teaming up to provide new skills for workers, new amenities for heritage and recreation sites and a boost to the Cariboo's economy under the Jobs Creation Partnership (JCP) program.
Five participants will work on the $400,000 project that will see upgrades to heritage/recreational sites and First Nations communities in the region. They'll gain experience in log building and trail construction and gain other valuable skills during the 36-week project.
The New Pathways to Gold Society, Canim Lake First Nation (Tsq'escenemc), Gold Rush Snowmobile Trail Regional Management Committee, Highway 24 Ice Caves Project, Government of Canada, Province of British Columbia and the Recreation Sites and Trails Branch of the Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operation are all project partners.
The JCP program is administered by the Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation.
