Saint-Constant, Quebec – Thanks to joint government funding, the Municipality of Saint-Constant will be able to construct a new aquatic centre, enhancing residents’ quality of life while contributing to the growth of sporting activities and enduring community prosperity.

Jean-Claude Poissant, Member of Parliament for La Prairie, and Nicole Ménard, Member of the National Assembly for Laporte and Chair of the Government Caucus, announced that the governments of Canada and Quebec will each invest close to $4.2 million for the construction of an aquatic centre. This financial support comes from the New Building Canada Fund, Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component–Small Communities Fund. The city will also provide close to $4.2 million, bringing the total government and municipal investment to more than $12.5 million.

“Sports infrastructure helps keep our communities healthy. In addition to helping residents maintain a healthy lifestyle, the future sports facilities will bring people together and contribute to the development of Saint-Constant for generations to come,” said Poissant.

The new aquatic centre will feature a pool with six to eight swimming lanes, diving boards, a wading pool with water slides, a hot tub and a multipurpose room.
