Infrastructure Canada

Today, Bobby Morrissey, Member of Parliament for Egmont, on behalf of the Honourable Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities; the Honourable James Aylward, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, and Clair Sweet of the West Prince Curling Club, announced funding for the construction of a new curling facility in West Prince, Prince Edward Island.

Funding will support the construction of a new 21,116 square foot, four sheet curling facility including washrooms, lockers, kitchen facilities, a clubhouse, administration space and storage. The new facility will be constructed in a more central location, allowing two existing curling facilities in nearby O’Leary and Alberton to merge.

The new curling centre will benefit curling enthusiasts and residents alike by improving recreational activities, reducing maintenance costs, and making it more efficient to gather for recreational purposes and curling matches in one improved location instead of two.

The Government of Canada is investing over $2.3 million in this project. The Government of Prince Edward Island is contributing more than $1.9 million to this project, while West Prince Curling Club Inc. is investing over $1.5 million.
