New Reserve Infrastructure Investment Program

August 01, 2019

OTTAWA: Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, wishes to inform constituents that the Department of National Defence has announced a new Reserve infrastructure investment program that will see approximately $250 million in repairs and upgrades to Reserve armouries and training facilities across Canada over the next five years. Approximately $38 million is expected to be invested in immediate maintenance and repairs across the country this year.

National Defence is also analyzing its Reserve infrastructure to help define Reservists’ longer-term infrastructure needs, to modernize facilities across the country.

“These upgrades will support our women and men in uniform to remain well trained, equipped and prepared for operations,” concluded MP Eglinski.
