Historic Trail Memorial Centre gets $3.5 million retrofit

TRAIL, B.C. – The governments of Canada and British Columbia are investing more than $3.5 million for an environmental and functional upgrade for the Trail Memorial Centre located in Trail, B.C.

The building will undergo a retrofit involving integration of its HVAC systems with its boiler and refrigeration units with a stated goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 73 per cent.

“Hockey is at the heart of many Canadians – mine included – which is why I’m pleased to announce this project. By improving the energy efficiency of the Trail Memorial Centre, this recreational facility can continue to serve as a community hub for residents of all ages. In small towns across Canada, this is where Canadians form lasting memories – from building some of our first friendships to becoming sports enthusiasts or even future professional athletes,” federal Minister of Housing, Infrastructure, and Communities Sean Fraser said in a statement.

The historic facility has hosted significant hockey games featuring Canadian Men’s and Women’s National Teams over the last 70 years and is equipped with two ice surfaces, dressing rooms, a gymnasium, racquetball and squash courts, meeting rooms, a large-scale commercial kitchen facility and the Hockey Hall of Memories.

The Government of Canada is investing $1.4 million in the project with B.C. investing $1.1 million and the City of Trail is contributing $941,094. Federal funding comes from the Green Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. The Government of British Columbia’s funding comes from the CleanBC Communities Fund.
