Feds provide funding to retrofit community centres in Markham

MARKHAM, ONT. — Three community centres in Markham are getting government funding for retrofits to assist the city in reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions.

The federal government is investing $6.4 million and the City of Markham is investing $1.5 million towards energy efficient upgrades for the Mount Joy Community Centre, Thornhill Community Centre, and the RJ Clatworthy Arena.

All three facilities will see operational improvements through work like enhancements to heating, ventilation and lighting systems.

Once complete, these facilities will be more energy efficient, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and have lower operational costs, states a release.

Combined, these improvements will reduce emissions by more than 580 tonnes, which is equivalent to removing about 130 gas-powered cars from the road every year.
