Sault's bushplane centre gets funding boost: Federal funds will improve exhibits, update equipment.


One of Sault Ste. Marie's most popular tourist attractions is getting a boost from the federal government.

On Feb. 5, Sault MP Terry Sheehan announced the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre would receive $20,772 to upgrade displays and equipment at the facility.

Dan Ingram, the centre's executive director, expressed his gratitude for the funding.

"As a top tourist attraction and community-gathering place in Sault Ste. Marie, we pride ourselves on providing high-quality engaging experiences in our museum," he said in a news release.

"This funding will go a long way to enhancing that guest experience."

This isn't the first time the centre has received federal funding help. In 2018, the centre received $438,000 to improve exhibition space, introduce new exhibits, and renovate public areas.
