April 25, 2022 - Winnipeg, Manitoba - Prairies Economic Development Canada

Many Canadians have fond memories of winter days spent at the local community centre skating rink. Whether it is early morning practices, or weekend tournaments, the rink is a place for people of all ages and abilities to connect with one another and make memories.

The Honourable Jim Carr, Member of Parliament for Winnipeg South Centre, on behalf of the Honourable Daniel Vandal, Minister for PrairiesCan, announced $301,250 in funding for the Riverview Community Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba. This investment is being made through the Canada Community Revitalization Fund, which aims to help communities across Canada build and improve community infrastructure.

In addition to the PrairiesCan funding, the Riverview Community Centre received $100,000 from the City of Winnipeg to upgrade their outdoor rink and recreational spaces. Project activities include pouring pavement, installing rink boards, fencing and lighting. The project will create a renewed outdoor recreational space to host a variety of year-round activities.

The Government of Canada is committed to promoting economic growth on the Prairies through programs and services, which help businesses, not-for-profits and communities grow stronger.
