MAJOR INVESTMENT IN ROSEBUD SCHOOL OF THE ARTS
The Rosebud School of the Arts will receive Federal and Provincial funding to build the Rosebud Centre, a 10,000 square foot two-story wood-framed building, that will include an enlarged gift shop, tourist information service centre, flexible education teaching space, and a restaurant to complement the current dining capacity at the Mercantile Dining Room. In addition to creating jobs, these improvements will further generate revenues by allowing the facility to operate year-round and enable more local and regional events, conferences, and festivals to be held in Rosebud.
Federal funding of $2 million is being provided through the Community Adjustment Fund (CAF) as part of Canada’s Economic Action Plan. In addition, the Government of Alberta is contributing $450,000 through the Community Facility Enhancement Program. More >
