Alberta to contribute $9.5 million to TELUS Spark Science Centre renovation

EDMONTON — One of Calgary’s biggest family attractions is scheduled to receive $9.5 million in support from the Government of Alberta.

The TELUS Sparks Science Centre is scheduled to receive the financial support as part of the Budget 2023 Capital Plan, should it pass. The funds would be doled out over three years, according to a news release.

The funds would go toward Spark’s World Class Gallery Development project which includes the renovation of three major exhibit halls, a new school group entrance and energy-efficient upgrades.

The project would receive $3.25 million in 2023-24, $4 million in 2024-25 and $2.25 million in 2025-26.

TELUS Spark started in 1967 with the current location opening in 2011. It was the first purpose-built science centre in Canada in 25 years at the time.

“These improvements will help visitors celebrate and enjoy science in fresh new ways. Through our Support for Cultural Infrastructure Program, we can help non-profit organizations like TELUS Spark help build vibrant communities and boost local economies,” said Jason Luan, minister of culture for Alberta, in the release.
