The Government of Manitoba and Canada have entered into an agreement to purchase and install directional highway and community boundary signage for Manitoba’s First Nations. Both governments will provide $200,000 each for the project.
Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler says the project will upgrade or replace highway signage for first nation’s communities located on Manitoba’s all weather highway network and the new signage will improve community visibility from our major highways.
Jane Philpott stated that it’s important to note that the new signs will be designed in consultation with elected leadership from these First Nations. A community review to determine the sign type and locations is expected to be conducted over the next year.
