LAFS applied for funding through the Canadian Economic Recovery Infrastructure Program to build on the work that we have done for the last three years around agricultural storage facilities.
We are very happy to announce that we were successful in our application for Agricultural Storage for the Lillooet area. A huge thank you to the Province of British Columbia for funding this project, and all of the other great projects that were awarded funding.
This project dovetails perfectly with our current Investment Readiness Project, which is currently in progress.
LAFS is now working on finding suitable locations for Agricultural Storage in Lillooet, and figuring out the next steps in terms of drawings, plans, organizational structure, and possible business models.
As an organization, we aim to support all agricultural endeavours, and hope to include a processing facility in the building to assist with the next stage of getting our local farmers’ products to market.
The project will start this year, and may take a year or two to complete. We will continue to post updates on here, as well as on our social media channels. If you have any any questions, or would like more information about the project, please contact us to discuss!
