Dugald will move forward with renovations to the Springfield Curling Rink thanks to the Recreational Infrastructure Canada (RInC) program, a major job-creating investment from Canada’s Economic Action Plan.
Today, the Honourable Vic Toews, President of the Treasury Board and Member of Parliament for Provencher, on behalf of the Honourable Lynne Yelich, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification, announced federal funding for the project that will create jobs for Manitoba.
Through Canada’s Economic Action Plan, our Government is working to create jobs and build a stronger foundation for future growth and prosperity,” said Minister Toews. “
This investment will help ensure the Springfield Curling Rink will continue to serve our community for years to come.”
Funding of $10,094 is provided through the Recreational Infrastructure Canada (RInC) program as part of Canada’s Economic Action Plan.
We are pleased that our partners in government are investing in our recreation facilities today and into the future,” said Peter Skrupski, Reeve, Rural Municipality of Springfield.
The Springfield Curling Rink will replace the existing condenser so that they can make ice and maintain the ice surface.
The Springfield curling rink greatly appreciates the contribution towards our condenser replacement project,” said Doug Shaver, President of the Springfield Curling Club. “
With this upgrade to our ice plant, we will be able to provide our membership and members of the surrounding communities who utilize our facility, continued enjoyment of the great sport of curling.”
The Recreational Infrastructure Canada (RInC) program will invest $500 million in recreational facilities across Canada over a two-year period. It will provide a temporary economic stimulus that will help reduce the impacts of the global recession while renewing, upgrading and expanding recreational infrastructure in Canadian communities.
