The Government of Canada is assisting us in the development of our announced skatepark.
Helena Jaczek, Minister responsible for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario) announced over $12.2 million for 33 tourism, community infrastructure and economic development projects in Peterborough, Northumberland and Kawartha Lakes.
The investments are intended to support communities and buisnesses to recover from the pandemic.
BGC Kawarthas' skatepark has received a $396,750 grant from the Canada Community Revitalization Fund (CCRF). This is in addition to the $475,000 Community Building Fund - Capital grant from the Government of Ontario, administered by the Ontario Trillium Fund that was announced in March.
