  Town of Hanover Receives Funding through Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program

 

Owen Sound, ON – Today, Larry Miller, MP for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound, on behalf of the Honourable Gary Goodyear, Minister for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario, announced that the Town of Hanover will be receiving $116,550 through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program.

 

The Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program is being delivered by regional development agencies across the country and will provide $150 million over the next two years to support the rehabilitation, renovation and expansion of existing community infrastructure. There was significant interest in the program in southern Ontario with FedDev receiving more than 1,100 applications during the application intake.

 

Projects have been selected based on program criteria including; the extent to which funding was leveraged from other sources, construction-readiness, and linkages to Canada’s 150th Anniversary. Funding for the Town of Hanover will support the rehabilitation of the Hanover Regional Aquatic Centre as well as upgrades to the P&H Centre.

 

“I am very pleased to see that the Town of Hanover will be receiving a significant amount of funding to support upgrades at the Hanover Regional Aquatic Centre and the P&H Centre,” said Miller. “These recreational facilities are both popular and very important to residents of Hanover and the surrounding area. I look forward to seeing the completion of these upgrades.”
