Inauguration of the Saint-Benoît-Labre water park

Government of Canada supported Municipality of Beauce community project

SAINT-BENOÎT-LABRE, QC, June 6, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED)

Key local stakeholders have long been asking for concrete, sustainable measures to improve community and recreational infrastructure. The Government of Canada is proud to support projects like the one by l'Œuvre des terrains de jeux de Saint-Benoît-Labre, which contribute to the strength and vitality of all regions of the country.

The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for CED, announced that l'Œuvre des terrains de jeux de Saint-Benoît-Labre Beauce Inc. has been granted $39,236 in financial assistance, in the form of a non-repayable contribution, to improve and expand the municipality's water park.

Incorporated in 1976, l'Œuvre des terrains de jeux de Saint-Benoît-Labre, is a non-profit organization mandated to organize, promote and follow up on sports and recreational activities in the Municipality of Saint-Benoît-Labre. Working with the municipality, it facilitates and coordinates activities, ensuring the fair use of community infrastructure placed at its disposal.

The funding awarded through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program (CIP150) enabled the organization to redo the reinforced concrete surface, buy and install play modules and the water management system, irrigate the soil, build a path to facilitate access to the site, restore the facility's perimeter, install benches and put up netting to protect the adjacent tennis court.

CED is one of the six regional development agencies under the responsibility of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development.

Today, as it was 150 years ago, coming together to meet others enriches us all."
