Columbia Basin Trust

People struggling to find an affordable place to live in the Columbia Basin region will have access to new affordable rental housing, thanks to a partnership announced today between the B.C. government and the Columbia Basin Trust.

Arts, culture and heritage are a valued part of the tapestry of the Columbia Basin region that enriches our communities and the lives of residents. Columbia Basin Trust is expanding its support for arts, culture and heritage with $11.6 million over three years.

Ecosystems around the Columbia Basin will receive a major boost thanks to a new Ecosystem Enhancement Program announced by Columbia Basin Trust. The program will run for five years with a budget of $10 million.

The Columbia Basin Trust is launching a new $3.6-million program to help maintain and create new child care spaces in the Basin. There are 2,600 child care spaces in the Basin, yet there is demand for more spaces, more staff and more training for staff.
