Quebec skating rink gets funding to build roof

WICKHAM, QUE.—The governments of Canada and Quebec recently announced $484,067 in funding for the addition of a roof over the skating rink in Wickham’s Parc des Générations.

The new roof will allow for a wider variety of activities and events at the facility. In winter, the roof will extend the hockey season and facilitate maintenance and in the summer it will allow community members to gather for various sports, recreational and family activities, indicates a release.

The roof will also provide shelter from the sun and rain for participants in Wickham’s day camp activities.

The Government of Canada is investing $242,033.50 through the Community, Culture and Recreation Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program and the Government of Quebec is investing $242,033.50 under Quebec’s Programme d’aide financière aux infrastructures récréatives et sportives.

“Access to quality, modern recreational and sports infrastructure is a priority for our government,” said Isabelle Charest, minister of education and minister responsible for the status of women, in a statement.

“We are providing Quebecers with quality facilities that offer a wide range of activities and equipment. This helps the entire population maintain their physical and mental health. I am very proud to know that, once again, this modern, tailored new infrastructure will meet the needs of the needs of athletes and young people in the community.”
