A planned cultural and arts centre is to receive $711,000 of provincial funding as part of the province’s COVID-19 recovery infrastructure spending.

The Salishan Place by the River, a cultural centre, and museum project, which is to replace and vastly expand the current Langley Centennial Museum, received the funding under the province’s Community Economic Recovery Infrastructure Fund.

It’s one of the larger projects in a $20 million spending package announced Feb. 24.

The funding is aimed at tourism and cultural projects.
