The Stephen F. Shaar Community Centre has been serving the town's residents for decades, and is home to art installations, community celebrations, and fitness classes frequented by Hudsonites.
CED is one of the six regional development agencies under the responsibility of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development.
"Through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program, we are strengthening communities across the country, making them even more dynamic and united than ever. I am happy to see that the residents of Hudson are now going to benefit from a renovated and enlarged community centre that will help continue to foster Hudson's community identity."
Peter Schiefke, Member of Parliament for Vaudreuil-Soulanges and Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister for Youth
