Infrastructure Canada

Today, Tony Van Bynen, Member of Parliament for Newmarket-Aurora, on behalf of the Honourable Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities, announced over $4.1 million in federal funding for the construction of a new nature centre in the Scanlon Creek Conservation Area.

With a net-zero carbon and universally accessible design, the new Scanlon Creek Nature Centre will serve as a community hub where residents of all ages and abilities can access nature and environmental programming to learn about climate change and inspire action. The construction of the new 750 square metre building will also allow the Lake Simcoe Conservation Foundation to work with the Lake Simcoe Conservation Authority to meet the needs of the growing surrounding communities and provide more equitable access for marginalized groups.

The Government of Canada is investing over $4.1 million for this project through the Green and Inclusive Community Buildings (GICB) program.
