Four Manitoba border crossings will share a $25 million infrastructure investment from the federal government.
Boissevain, Cartwright, Lena and Crystal City ports of entry will see upgraded or replaced with modern facilities to keep consistent with the Canada Border Services Agency’s efforts towards modernization.
“By investing in border infrastructure at the Boissevain, Lena, Cartwright and Crystal city ports of entry, the Harper government is helping support the economy in Manitoba,” said Brandon-Souris MP Larry Maguire.
Construction work is planned to begin as early as 2017.
