MINO-AYA-WIN Centre receives $4.9M for construction; will use geothermal energy

WINNIPEG — Little Saskatchewan First Nation’s new MINO-AYA-WIN Centre in Manitoba is receiving $4.9 million in joint funding for construction.

The new centre will include a 34,000-square-foot geothermal ice rink and training facility. Geothermal is clean energy produced by harnessing the earth’s natural cooling and heating mechanisms and will reduce the operational costs of the new centre, according to a news release.

“Phase 1 of the MINO-AYA-WIN Centre project focuses on the arena component, which we anticipate will become a vital part of our community’s recreational, social and cultural infrastructure, encouraging participation from our youth, Elders, and all community members to be active, connect and grow,” said Chief Hector Shorting of the Little Saskatchewan First Nation in the release.

The Government of Canada is contributing $3.68 million for the project and the First Nation is contributing $1.22 million, states the release.

The funding comes out of the Rural and Northern Infrastructure Stream of which the federal government has contributed $110 million and the Government of Manitoba $58 million towards eligible project costs.
