Canada and Ontario invest in improved recreational infrastructure for residents of East Ferris


MUNICIPALITY OF EAST FERRIS, ON, April 16, 2021 /CNW/ - Canadians everywhere are feeling the impact of COVID-19, on their families, their livelihoods and their way of life. Together, Canada and Ontario are working to reduce the impact of the pandemic, ensure health and safety, rebuild businesses, and promote job creation, growth and investment.

Today, Paul Lefebvre, Member of Parliament for Sudbury, on behalf of the Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities; The Honourable Vic Fedeli, Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade and Member of Provincial Parliament for Nipissing, on behalf of the Honourable Laurie Scott, Ontario's Minister of Infrastructure; and Her Worship Pauline Rochefort, Mayor of the Municipality of East Ferris, announced joint funding to rehabilitate and expand Corbeil Park Recreation Hub.

The project work includes improvements to the park's soccer field; addition of an overhead cover with lighting for the outdoor rink; renovation of the existing tennis court and the construction of another; lighting and signage for the parking lot; and replacement of playground equipment with new accessible equipment. The project will enable the Municipality of East Ferris to improve access to recreational opportunities by providing a larger, safer, and more accessible facility.

The Government of Canada is investing $581,222 in this project through the Community, Culture and Recreation Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada plan. The Government of Ontario is providing $484,303, while the Municipality of East Ferris is contributing $387,530.

All orders of government continue to work together for the people of Ontario to make strategic infrastructure investments in communities across the province when needed most.
