The 75-kilometre West Coast Trail is getting repairs to bridges, ladders and other sections, as part of $33.6 million in funding announced for Parks Canada.

The money is the largest federal infrastructure investment in Parks Canada since its formation 104 years ago, said Vancouver Island North MP John Duncan.

Other money will be used for upgrades to the Fisgard Lighthouse, Fort Rodd Hill in Colwood, Pacific Rim National Park, Gulf Islands National Park Reserve and coastal lighthouses.
