Ontario is celebrating its 150th anniversary as a province by improving and renovating community spaces in Northumberland-Quinte West and delivering better facilities for families in the community.
Lou Rinaldi, MPP for Northumberland-Quinte West announced today that Trent Hills will be receiving $35,000 in support through the Ontario150 Community Capital Program to upgrade two surfaces and the fencing at Campbellford Tennis Courts.
The Ontario150 Community Capital Program will help not-for-profit organizations, municipalities and Indigenous communities renovate, repair and retrofit existing community and cultural infrastructure. This support will be used to increase accessibility, improve safety and maximize community use of public spaces.
In celebration of Ontario’s 150th anniversary, the province has also released a new recording of A Place to Stand (Ontario Song), the province's unofficial anthem. The 50-year-old song has been refreshed to instill a sense of pride and belonging for all.
Investing in local communities for Ontario's 150th anniversary is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
“Infrastructure is the backbone that supports community life. It gives us spaces to come together, to be active or to honour our heritage. I’m pleased our government is helping Trent Hills strengthen the community infrastructure that makes a difference in our everyday lives.”
— Lou Rinaldi, M.P.P., Northumberland-Quinte West
“The Ontario150 Community Capital Program will positively impact people right across the province by improving public spaces like parks and youth centres. Our investments in these important projects will build a strong social, cultural and economic legacy for our communities for years to come.”
—Eleanor McMahon, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport
"This project has been on the backburner for many years without sufficient local funding being available. With the Ontario government's generous recognition of Trent Hills Council's direction to promote fitness and wellness within our communities, and as well as a very generous contribution from our Campbellford/Seymour Community Foundation, we have another perfect example of how well partnership can work."
— Hector Macmillan, Mayor, Municipality of Trent Hills
