Main Street Health Centre receives $10.6 million for efficiency upgrades

WINNIPEG — A long-standing community health facility in Winnipeg will be getting some upgrades.

The Government of Canada is supplying $10.6 million in funding for energy efficiency and accessibility improvements to the Main Street Project’s Martha Street Facility.

Main Street provides programming and social service supports for people experiencing mental health challenges, homelessness and substance use disorders, serving as a welcoming space for marginalized community members, reads a press release.

Funds will help modernize the protective care facility by transforming the emergency shelter into an expanded withdrawal management services space. The envelope, windows, roof, plumbing and electrical systems will be upgraded for efficiency.

Accessibility upgrades include added elevators, accessible washrooms and automated doors.

Energy improvements are estimated to reduce the facility’s consumption by 44.8 per cent and greenhouse gas emissions by 232 tonnes.

“We are proud to support this life-changing organization, while continuing to build on our government’s commitment to foster a cleaner, low-carbon economy,” said Terry Duguid, parliamentary secretary to the minister of environment and climate change, in the release.
