ASCOT CORNER, QUE. — The Government of Canada recently announced a non-repayable contribution of $431,591 to improve Ascot Corner’s Centre communautaire Paul‑Lessard in Quebec.
Provided under the Canada Community Revitalization Fund, the funding will enable the municipality to expand the building to add an elevator and install accessible washrooms, a sidewalk and access ramps for people with reduced mobility and a stationary generator.
The improvements will provide the community with spaces and activities that better meet its needs, states a release.
Alain Rondeau, city councillor for Ascot Corner and head of leisure, sports and culture said the city has been developing a vision of a multicultural institution that is more accessible for the entire community since 2017.
