The governments of Canada and Quebec are working together to provide Quebecers with access to safe and sustainable facilities that promote recreation and sport in our communities.
Today, the Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Health and Member of Parliament for Quebec, on behalf of the Honourable Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities, and Mario Asselin, Member of the National Assembly for Vanier-Les Rivières, on behalf of Isabelle Charest, Minister for Education and Minister Responsible for the Status of Women, announced $361,324 in funding for replacement of the artificial turf of one of the outdoor soccer fields at Chauveau Park in Québec City.
The project primarily involves the removal of the soccer field’s existing turf, which has reached the end of its useful life, and the installation of a brand-new artificial turf. Through this project, Québec City will be able to offer its residents a higher-quality recreational facility.
To support this project, the Government of Canada is providing $180,661.50 under the Community, Culture and Recreation Stream (CCRIS) of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP), and the Government of Quebec is providing $180,661.50 under its Programme d’aide financière aux infrastructures récréatives et sportives (Recreational and Sports Infrastructure Financial Assistance Program) (PAFIRS). This renovated facility will contribute to the vitality and development of the community of Vanier-Les Rivières and the entire region.
