Both schools are located on the Alberta side of the city. The governments of Alberta and Saskatchewan share the costs of school capital projects in the community, based on the number of students who live in each province. Alberta taxpayers will fund about 58 per cent of these two projects.
Lloydminster Public School Division’s Comprehensive High School will see an addition and modernization, with an estimated cost of about $25 million. The renovation of Holy Rosary High School, which is part of the Lloydminster Roman Catholic Separate School Division, will cost about $10 million.
“Albertans elected us with a mandate to continue building schools across Alberta. These two projects, which are both on the Alberta side of the border, will provide up-to-date learning environments for students in Lloydminster in the years to come.”
“Funding from Alberta taxpayers for two new schools in Lloydminster will create more than 110 good-paying jobs in the city at a time when we face unprecedented unemployment. These new schools, along with 66 other school projects underway throughout the province, are part of Alberta’s Recovery Plan, which is building vital infrastructure in every corner of the province.”
“This announcement is excellent news for families in Lloydminster. Families rely on these schools, and these much-needed upgrades will help improve education in our community.”
Alberta’s Recovery Plan is a bold, ambitious long-term strategy to build, diversify, and create tens of thousands of jobs now. By building schools, roads and other core infrastructure we are benefiting our communities. By diversifying our economy and attracting investment with Canada’s most competitive tax environment, we are putting Alberta on a path for a generation of growth. Alberta came together to save lives by flattening the curve and now we must do the same to save livelihoods, grow and thrive.
