Canada’s Economic Action Plan (EAP) is working and is helping Canadians through these fragile economic times. Since July 2009, the EAP has helped to create over 560,000 jobs across Canada.

Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD) is responsible for the delivery of key EAP programs in Western Canada and has made significant progress in delivering results for western communities, industries and businesses.

WD has worked closely with project proponents to deliver funding under the Community Adjustment Fund (CAF) and the Recreational Infrastructure Canada (RInC) program.
