Edmonton, Alberta, May 18, 2018—The governments of Canada and Alberta recognize the importance of investing in infrastructure that encourages learning, promotes inclusivity and improves community connections.

Today, the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, and the Honourable Shaye Anderson, Alberta Minister of Municipal Affairs, were joined by Pilar Martinez, Chief Executive Officer of the Edmonton Public Library (EPL), to announce $4 million in joint federal-provincial funding for the revitalization of the Stanley A. Milner Library in downtown Edmonton.

The work being funded is part of the overall library project currently under way and includes structural, mechanical and electrical upgrades, the addition of community meeting rooms, event space, and improvements to make accessing the library easier. 

This project will bring Edmontonians a leading-edge community learning resource equipped to meet the growing and changing needs of users for years to come.
