More programs and record revenues highlight the CBT Annual Report

CBT

Record revenues, and the number of programs available was the highest they've ever had, as well as the number of individual projects supported.

That's the latest in the Columbia Basin Trust's Annual Report.

President and CEO Johnny Strilaeff says they like to talk about what they've accomplished as an organization, as well as what the region has accomplished.

 Strilaeff says revenues increased more than 10 percent over the past fiscal year, up to 71.9 million, due in part to the performance from their hydropower facilities.

He says one of the highlights was the purchase of Creston's 80-plus year-old grain elevators, two of four remaining wooden grain elevators in BC, to ensure their structural integrity and historical preservation

Meanwhile 2020 will be a busy year for the CBT, their existing strategic plan is set to expire, so they'll be doing consultations around the region.
