WINNIPEG — The provincial and federal governments are spending $400,000 on directional highway and community boundary signage for Manitoba First Nations.

In consultation with elected community leadership, the signs will ensure correct and respectful wording is printed.

Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler says the project will upgrade or replace highway signs for First Nations communities located on Manitoba’s all-weather highway network.

The new signage will improve community visibility from Manitoba’s major highways.

The province says a community review will determine sign type and locations over the next year. Sign installation will be completed over the next three years.

Each of the two levels of government is contributing $200,000.
