DONNACONA, QC – The governments of Canada and Quebec will each invest more than $2.2 million for four projects in the Portneuf region. This financial support comes from the New Building Canada Fund, Small Communities Fund–Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component.
The project in Saint-Ubalde involves expanding the entry hall to the local recreation centre. The governments of Canada and Quebec will each invest nearly $74,000 in this project. The municipality will also provide close to $74,000, bringing the total government and municipal investment to more than $221,000.
Also, three projects will take place in Donnacona: the rehabilitation of four tennis courts, the construction of a community centre, and the construction of an aquatic centre. The combined cost of these three projects totals more than $6.5 million, which will be split equally into $2.1 million shares among the Town of Donnacona, the Government of Quebec and the Government of Canada.
These projects will promote healthy lifestyles among local residents, especially young people and students.
“Recreational infrastructure helps make our communities places where families can have fun and get together. Our government is proud to be making investments, like these in Donnacona and Saint-Ubalde, that offer residents new opportunities to engage in a variety of sports year-round, and foster economic growth and the creation of well-paid middle-class jobs,” said Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, on behalf of the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities.
