Municipal Affairs Minister Zach Churchill introduced amendments today, Nov. 24, to provide Halifax Regional Municipality with clear authority to award bursaries to graduates in the community of Sackville. The amendments to the Community of Sackville Landfill Compensation Act will update and clarify the definitions in the act to reflect changes within the municipality since the legislation was put in place. The amendments clarify that the bursary fund is for the benefit of the community of Sackville and students will continue to be able to apply for support for post-secondary studies. The Community of Sackville Bursary Fund was created in June 1994. Making the amendments retroactive will verify the municipality’s authority to make prior and future awards.
