The announcement was made by the Honourable Dwight Ball, Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador, and the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, on behalf of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency. Gudie Hutchings, Member of Parliament for Long Range Mountains, also participated in the announcement.
