Canada and Ontario Invest in Community and Recreation Infrastructure

Investments in key infrastructure projects ensure thriving and healthy communities across Canada. From roads and community centres to public transit and water reservoirs, reliable infrastructure provides communities with opportunities to grow and develop today so that they can be resilient in the face of tomorrow.

The Government of Canada is investing more than $20.8 million in these projects through the Community, Culture and Recreation Stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. The Government of Ontario is providing over $17.3 million, while recipients and partners are contributing over $13.8 million in total.

Among the projects announced today is the construction of the Kiwanis Kineto Theatre renovation and expansion.  The project will link two heritage buildings together, bring the industrial kitchen up to public health standards and enhance the building’s essential services such as plumbing and electrical. This project will provide a fully accessible, full service multi-purpose heritage facility to support a variety of programs, services and cultural activities that support local community needs.

Supported by a plan to stay open, the government is building Ontario.

“The people of Ontario deserve a government that has a real plan to build,” said Minister Bethlenfalvy. “Our government’s Budget is Premier Ford’s vision and our plan to cut through the excuses and act right away on the priorities of the people of Ontario.”
