NIVERVILLE, MAN. — Provincial and federal officials have announced a new community hub for students and residents in Niverville, Man.
Jim Carr, minister of international trade diversification, announced funding for the new Niverville Community Resource Centre, which will consist of constructing a 9,200-square-metre multi-use facility for recreational and cultural programming and services for the community and surrounding areas.
The multiplex’s design includes a performing arts centre, not-for-profit community childcare centre, field house, leisure activity spaces, an indoor play area, arena, meeting rooms and community common areas.
A site near Arena Road next to the new Niverville High School and existing arena has been selected for the centre so students and residents can access multiple amenities and social programs in one location.
Ottawa has committed up to $7.8 million for the project through the Investing in Canada Plan. The Government of Manitoba is providing up to $3.5 million and the Town of Niverville is contributing up to $8.2 million.
“The Niverville Community Resource Centre will introduce an exciting new space for the community where residents of all ages can access cultural and recreational programming and essential community resources,” said Carr in a press release. “Our Government is proud to be investing in infrastructure projects across the province that are improving the lives of Manitobans, promoting economic growth and strengthening the middle class.”
