View details and
The Honourable Carolyn Bertram, Minister of Communities, Cultural Affairs and Labour, along with Robert Henderson, MLA for O’Leary - Inverness, recently visited the O’Leary Community Sport Centre, which is undergoing major renovations thanks in part to funding provided through the Province’s Island Community Fund.
“The O’Leary Community Sport Centre provides a facility for the community to come together for special events, hockey games, figure skating and community skates. Being physically active is an important element to a healthy lifestyle and a vibrant community,” said Minister Bertram. “The Province is pleased to contribute to these important upgrades which will help to sustain the facility and make it more energy efficient.”
The Province has contributed $38,850 through the Island Community Fund towards the $92,500 project. The project will consist of upgrades to the plumbing and electrical systems, as well as new insulation, windows, doors and lighting.
Committed to in Budget 2008, the Island Community Fund represents a provincial investment of $27.5 million towards the infrastructure needs of Prince Edward Island communities. The Island Community Fund is just one component of the over $80 million the province is investing in infrastructure for our one Island community.
