Whether we’re enjoying a gathering at the community centre or a friendly competition at a recreation facility, Canadians have long understood the value of these important community spaces.
Today I had the pleasure to join President David Agnew at the grand opening of Seneca‘s StingDome. Thanks to the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program, student athletes will have a year-round facility to practice in. The Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program marked a national commitment of $300 million to support projects that renovate, expand and improve existing community and cultural infrastructure across Canada. This project is just one of over 730 approved projects in southern Ontario aimed to promote culture and bring communities closer together.
With the completion of the StingDome, I look forward to seeing an improved community space as we celebrate an exciting milestone with the 150th anniversary of our great country.
