Grants and Funding Received by the Township

The Township of Langley regularly applies for grants and external funding, typically from senior government, to complement the great work already underway in the municipality.

Grants provide the Township valuable resources to carry out new projects or services in addition those set out in the annual Operating and Capital Budget.

The following are grants recently received by the Township. Jump to grants received in 2021, 2020, and 2019.

2022

Canada Healthy Communities Initiative

Funding partner: Government of Canada, through the Community Foundations of Canada

Value: $74,000

Awarded: March 2022

By creating a protected and accessible active mobility corridor connecting residential and destination commercial areas, and by expanding outdoor gathering spaces for social interaction, Township residents will have increased opportunities to travel in safe, healthy, inclusive, and sustainable ways to local destinations.

The pilot project includes temporarily upgrading an existing two-way bike route into protected lanes for walking and rolling to Fort Langley, a busy tourist destination in the Township.

The protected lanes, known as an active mobility corridor, will utilize the tools of tactical urbanism, including bollards, to create separation from vehicle traffic on the road. This will act as a traffic calming measure while also reducing the number of vehicles travelling to Fort Langley. The active mobility corridor provides a key connection between a growing residential neighbourhood and a tourist destination and will aim to introduce active mobility to families and others who might otherwise use a personal vehicle for local trips.

Interface Fire Management Grant

Funding partner: The Province of British Columbia via Union of British Columbia Municipalities Community Resiliency Investment Program

Value: $38,500

Awarded: March 2022

Through funding provided by the Province of BC, the UBCM Community Resiliency Investment Program provides funding for communities to undertake FireSmart planning and activities that increase community resiliency and reduce risk from wildfire.

For lower risk communities, generally demonstrated by Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) Risk Class 4 and 5, funding of up to $50,000 is available to complete a FireSmart plan or complete activities identified within the plan. In addition, communities are required to propose public education components as part of their grant applications.

UBCM has approved $38,500 of requested funding for the development of an Interface Fire Management Plan. As part of the Coast Fire Centre, the Township of Langley is classified as Wildland Urban Interface Risk Class 5 but is home to many large strands of trees on private property and substantial regional parks that contain considerable amounts of trees.

There is a risk that wildfires can develop in these areas and transfer to surrounding residential property causing significant risk to life and property. Additionally, heat-related events may cause Wildland Urban Interface fires, causing damage to trees in green spaces and parks. The Interface Fire Management would work with the Township Parks department to develop FireSmart principals for public spaces and parks.

Local Government Development Approvals Program

Funding partner: The Province of British Columbia via Union of British Columbia Municipalities

Value: $500,000

Awarded: September 2021

The Local Government Development Approvals Program funding will help the Township digitize the development application process for a more efficient and innovative experience.

The Township of Langley is pleased to receive $500,000 of Local Government Development Approvals Program grant funding from the provincial Ministry of Municipal Affairs, administered through the Union of British Columbia Municipalities. The funding will support the Township’s transition to an online development application process.

In March 2019, a Mayor’s Standing Committee was established to review, and identify opportunities to improve, the Township’s development approval process. The Committee, with assistance from municipal staff and Simon Fraser University’s Urban Studies Program, worked to examine and make recommendations to improve the current system. In July 2020, the Committee’s Development Management Process Review Report found improvements could be made when it came to resources for staff, streamlined processes, updated policies, and a focus on innovation.

The Local Government Development Approvals Program funding will help the Township act on some of the suggested improvements outlined in the report. Via new software, the development application process will move to an online system. Applicants and staff will benefit from digital submission and payment tools, workflow and application status updates, and the ability to respond to requests for additional information through the software.

“Introducing a digital system for development applications will streamline the process and improve the efficiencies of the development process for staff and applicants alike,” said Ramin Seifi, General Manager, Engineering and Community Development. “Finding new techniques to increase efficiency and facilitate better communication helps us move toward more innovative community planning and development work overall.”

The Township of Langley is one of 43 local governments to receive funding through the provincial Local Government Development Approvals Program.

Strengthening Communities’ Services Program

Funding partner: Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia via Union of British Columbia Municipalities

Value: $2,500,000

Awarded: August 2021

The Strengthening Communities’ Services Program aims to address challenges, exacerbated by COVID-19, faced by some of the most vulnerable members of the community.

The Township has received $2,500,000 of one-time funding through the Union of British Columbia Municipalities 2021 Strengthening Communities Services Program. The funding, provided by the Province of BC and the Government of Canada, will enable the Township to undertake temporary action over a one-year period in support of services for people at-risk of or experiencing homelessness.

The Township will allocate the grant funding toward several initiatives, including enhanced outreach and support services for people experiencing homelessness (delivered by the non-profit sector), increased resources and distributable supplies for Bylaw Enforcement, development of a multi-sectoral working group and public engagement strategies, as well as internal training and administration.

While local governments do not have the mandate or resources to provide services for people at-risk of or experiencing homelessness, this grant provides the ability to improve the health and safety of at-risk populations and the greater community, increase coordination between service delivery agencies and clients, and facilitate culturally-safe support and trauma-informed response for diverse community members. The Strengthening Communities Services Program funding will provide full coverage for the cost of eligible actions.

The Strengthening Communities’ Services Program aims to address challenges, exacerbated by COVID-19, faced by some of the most vulnerable members of the community. Under the Safe Restart Agreement, the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia are providing $540 million in shared funding to local governments, with $100 million dedicated to Strengthening Communities’ Services Program.

Salishan Place by the River (CERIP)

Funding partner: BC Ministry of Tourism, Arts, Culture and Sport

Value: $711,354

Awarded: February 2021

This facility is being developed in Fort Langley, in partnership with Kwantlen First Nation, and in collaboration with Katzie, Matsqui, and Semiahmoo First Nations, on whose traditional territories the Township was established, the Waceya Métis Society, and the Lower Fraser Valley Aboriginal Society. Representatives from these communities and organizations are currently visioning exhibitions and programs for the community and Indigenous galleries at Salishan.

This funding, awarded under the Destination Development stream of CERIP, supports economic resilience, tourism, heritage, and urban and rural economic development projects in communities impacted by COVID-19.
