Key local stakeholders have long been asking for concrete, sustainable measures to improve community and recreational infrastructure. The Government of Canada is proud to invest in projects such as this one by the Municipality of Saint-Onésime-d'Ixworth, 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 the Municipality of Saint-Onésime-d'Ixworth was granted $30,318 in financial assistance, in the form of a non-repayable contribution, to renovate and improve Les Générations community hall, which is being officially opened today.
Built in 1992, Les Générations community hall is used by residents for a variety of recreational, social and family activities. The funding awarded through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program (CIP150) helped the Municipality of Saint-Onésime-d'Ixworth improve and renovate the building's interior, including the washrooms, kitchen, walls, floors and ceiling, as well as the storage area. The renovations have been completed, ensuring the sustainability of the community centre, which will benefit residents by contributing to their well-being.
CED is one of the six regional development agencies under the responsibility of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development.
"By investing in our communities, we are clearly showing that we are committed to fostering sustainable growth and prosperity in Canada. By improving community infrastructure such as Les Générations community hall, we are stimulating the vitality of our communities and helping ensure a higher quality of life for residents of all ages."
The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister responsible for CED
"We are delighted about the support we received from CED to complete this project. With these improvements to the community hall, residents will be able to enjoy safe, accessible infrastructure that is better adapted to their needs."
