Grant for The Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre

The Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, has received a financial boost with a $20,772 grant to help with audio-visual equipment upgrades from the federal government’s Canada Cultural Spaces Fund. This is in top of $438,000 in grants given to the museum already under Ottawa’s FedNor program, designed to fund economic development in northern Ontario. In operation for 31 years, the museum concentrates on both local and remote bush plane history and artifacts, as well as the role of firefighting in the northern part of the province.
