Canada – Two community organizations in Happy Valley-Goose Bay will benefit from investments to help bring people back to public spaces safely

Canadian cities and towns flourish when they have community public spaces to promote social interaction and physical activity, and provide access to recreational programs and facilities. These amenities are integral to the overall well-being of individuals, families and communities. Our economic recovery is closely linked to the vitality of our local communities and their shared spaces.

Government of Canada fueling community revitalization and creating the conditions for local economies to thrive as they rebound from the effects of COVID-19

February 18, 2022 · Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador · Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA)

Canadian cities and towns flourish when they have community public spaces to promote social interaction and physical activity, and provide access to recreational programs and facilities. These amenities are integral to the overall well-being of individuals, families and communities. Our economic recovery is closely linked to the vitality of our local communities and their shared spaces.

Today, Yvonne Jones, Member of Parliament for Labrador, announced total investments of $114,665 through the Canada Community Revitalization Fund (CCRF) for two projects in Happy Valley-Goose Bay. The announcement was made on behalf of the Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Minister of Official Languages and Minister responsible for ACOA.

This support will allow two community-based organizations to upgrade their facilities with new accessibility features and install energy efficient technology, including heat pumps and LED lighting. This will create safer and more comfortable gathering places.

For further details, please see backgrounder.

The CCRF was launched in June 2021. The Fund provides $500 million over two years to Canada’s regional development agencies (RDAs) to invest in shared and inclusive public spaces. As public health restrictions ease, the Government of Canada remains committed to investing in shared spaces to make them safer, greener and more accessible. This in turn will stimulate local economies, create jobs, and improve the quality of life for Canadians.

“Strong, vibrant communities in Newfoundland and Labrador are a critical part of a robust and inclusive economic recovery. Investing in shared spaces like these two community-based facilities in Happy Valley-Goose Bay helps revitalize local economies, boosts tourism, creates jobs, and gives residents a place to come together safely.”

–       The Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Minister of Official Languages and Minister responsible for ACOA

“With these investments, we are strengthening the community of Happy Valley Goose Bay. From supporting our veterans to offering space to host community events, this funding will help bring the Happy Valley Goose Bay residents together and celebrate their amazing community.”

–       Yvonne Jones, Member of Parliament for Labrador

CCRF funding will support two major streams of activity:

o   adapt community spaces and assets so that they may be used safely in accordance with local public health guidelines,

o   build or improve community spaces to encourage Canadians to re-engage in, and explore their communities and regions. 

Eligible recipients will include not-for-profit organizations; rural, municipal or regional governments; Indigenous groups and communities; and public sector bodies that provide municipal-type infrastructure. 

Priority may be given to projects that encourage the participation of underrepresented groups and take into consideration the unique challenges of rural and remote communities. 

For more information on the application process, eligibility criteria and eligible expenses, or to apply for the CCRF, reach out to your regional development agency.

Canada’s regional development agencies are continuing to deliver targeted support for economic recovery in the region. Application intake is open through the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency for the Canada Community Revitalization Fund, Jobs and Growth Fund, Aerospace Regional Recovery Initiative and Tourism Relief Fund.

Mid-Market Organizations Gain Robust Multi-Way Matching Capabilities with Adra(R) by Trintech

Trintech, a leading global provider of integrated Record to Report software solutions for the Office of Finance, today announced a new automated multi-way transaction matching feature in its Adra Suite to help mid-market organizations save time and reduce risk in the transaction matching process. With this new automated multi-way matching feature, customers can set up match scenarios and deploy intelligent rules to automatically review one-to-one, one-to-many, many-to-one, and many-to-many matches.

“As companies continue to grow, expand and adapt, specifically companies in the eCommerce and restaurant industries, they begin to realize that a manual multi-way matching process cannot effectively scale to handle reconciling new sources and higher volumes of data,” said Darren Heffernan, President, Mid-Market at Trintech. “With our robust matching engine that is not typically found in a solution designed and priced for the mid-market, matching can happen daily, so transactions don’t accumulate at month-end when you need time for higher-value tasks like analysis and reporting.”

With Adra, matching transactions with bank statements, credit card statements, point of sale, merchant, 3rd party delivery services, and other external sources happen in a fraction of the time that manual spreadsheet or paper-based processes take, allowing F&A teams more time to spend on unmatched transaction exceptions – improving the accuracy and reliability of your close.

“The time savings isn’t just during the close process, we also see it from a day-to-day perspective,” said Shelly Traylor, Sr. Treasury Analyst at Torchy’s Tacos. “We are no longer spending time manually matching accounts because we now let Adra do the matching automatically so we can spend our valuable time focused on the exceptions.”

Just some of the benefits finance & accounting departments will gain include:

– Focus only on exceptions to start your day
– Utilize automated multi-way matching (3-way, 4-way, etc.) that scales with business growth
– Save time by continuously processing transactions so they don’t pile up
– Effortlessly import new data types and sources
– Record all activities in an audit-ready format
– Illuminate potential mismatches and generate exception reports that mitigate risk
