Frequently Asked Questions

Are there provincial and federal grants available for this project?
There are no specific grants available to build a new recreation centre. The $13.75 million that we identified includes our Municipal Sustainability Initiative (MSI) grant that we receive from the Province and our Federal Gas Tax grant that we receive from the Federal Government. There were expectations that the new Build Canada grant that was announced by the Government of Canada would allow us to access funds for this project; however, they have removed Sport and Recreation facilities from the list of projects that are allowed to access the funds. We are hopeful that there will be additional dollars found by both the provincial and federal government to contribute to this project and are currently advocating to our elected representatives on all levels to work towards that. This is why it is so important to form partnerships with regional municipalities and stakeholders like the school divisions as they may have the ability to access funding that we can’t receive on our own.
