British Columbia This Week

What to Expect

Premier-designate Eby will lose the latter half of the moniker on Friday when he is sworn in as Premier. That won’t end the political prognostication; Cabinet won’t be sworn in until December 7, and speculation about who’s in and who’s out will dominate discussions. As such, government announcements will remain scant until the government is in place.

The Week That Was

The second intake of the provincial connectivity funding program, Connecting Communities BC, will open for applications on December 16, 2022. The program supports expanding high-speed internet services to under-served rural, remote and Indigenous communities in British Columbia.

The Government of B.C. is investing as much as $33 million in 2022-23 to create the Rural Economic Diversification and Infrastructure Program (REDIP), which will support projects that promote economic diversification, resilience, clean-growth opportunities and infrastructure development.
