Canada and Quebec provide over $1.9 million in financial assistance to build an intergenerational cooling area

Infrastructure Canada

The governments of Canada and Quebec are working together to give Quebecers access to safe and sustainable facilities that encourage people to get involved in sports and recreational activities in our communities.

Today, Alexandra Mendès, Member of Parliament for Brossard-Saint-Lambert, on behalf of the Honourable Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities, and Isabelle Charest, Minister for Education and Minister Responsible for the Status of Women, announced more than $1.9 million in financial assistance to build a new intergenerational cooling area at Victorin park. They were joined by Doreen Assaad, Mayor of Brossard.

The project aims to build an intergenerational cooling area at Victorin park to replace the existing outdated aquatics facilities. The work consists mainly of demolishing the existing facilities, rebuilding a service building, a main pool, a splash pad and paved areas, and fitting up relaxation and landscaped areas.

To support the delivery of this project, the Government of Canada is investing $992,958.50 under the Community, Culture and Recreation Infrastructure stream (CCRIS) of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP), and the Government of Quebec is investing $992,958.50 under the Programme d’aide financière aux infrastructures récréatives et sportives (PAFIRS) [financial assistance program for recreational and sports infrastructure]. This new infrastructure will contribute to the vitality and development of the community of Brossard.
