Canadian government funds B.C. transit security projects

Posted on January 24, 2008

Vancouver and Lower Mainland, B.C. will receive up to $7.1 million in funding for the development of training programs; the upgrade of access control measures, security technology and communication equipment; and the development of risk assessments and security plans.  

"This funding represents our government's continued vigilance in protecting Canada's passenger rail and urban transit systems," said The Honourable Stockwell Day, minister of public safety. "We are addressing the unique security challenges, inherent in open transportation networks such as Canada's, and above all, protecting Canadians."  

The funding is being provided through the fourth round of Transit-Secure, the Canadian government’s passenger rail and urban transit security contribution program.
