Government of Canada Celebrates Local Benefits of the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund

Georgetown, Ontario – Michael Chong, Member of Parliament for Wellington-Halton Hills, today announced $514,667 in federal funding for the Mold Masters Sportsplex Twin Rink in Georgetown.

Across the country, community centres, cultural centres, ice rinks, swimming pools, and other community projects will soon be improved thanks to support from the Government of Canada’s Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund (CIIF).

“Our Government is committed to creating jobs and economic growth through investments in our communities,” said Chong. “By improving facilities such as this one, we are helping to boost the local economy. We’re also helping to encourage healthy, active lifestyles through winter sports for young and old alike.”

As part of the Government’s Economic Action Plan 2012, the Government of Canada has committed to supporting communities and creating jobs through repairs and improvements to existing community facilities over the next two years.

“The Town of Halton Hills is delighted to hear the news that we will receive funding from the Federal Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund,” said Mayor Bonnette.  “We continue to commit to bringing more healthy lifestyle opportunities to our community.”
