B.C.’s COVID-19 Response: Community Economic Resilience Grants

June 28, 2022

Our audit looked at whether the Ministry of Municipal Affairs designed and implemented the $30-million grant stream according to government transfer payment policies and program guidelines. 

The grants were intended to help communities deal with the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Grants went to 63 small-scale infrastructure projects that included building new bike paths, upgrading for public buildings, and improving parks.
