Val Rita-Harty will be receiving a small sum of funding from the country’s largest agricultural investor.

Farm Credit Canada, an organization whose purpose is to help enhance rural Canadian communities by providing financial services to farming operations, has contributed $50,000 to 23 projects in official language minority communities.

Val Rita-Harty will be one of the 20 local scale initiatives receiving a $500 contribution, and one of only two in Ontario alongside the village of Casselman.

Executive VP and CEO of FCC human resources Greg Honey says they are proud to support the efforts of these groups to promote expression of their unique bilingual heritage.

Further details about how the contribution will be used are to come.
