LINDSAY – Local MP Jamie Schmale was pleased to join Northumberland-Peterborough South MP Kim Rudd to announce over $330,000.00 to four different organizations through Intake Two of the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program (CIP 150).

“Infrastructure investments help with long-term, sustainable economic growth in our municipalities,” said Schmale. “Funding these important community assets will leave a lasting legacy that will contribute to our celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation.”

In total, $333,888.00 was announced for Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock.

The Municipality of Highlands East will receive $23,888.00 for improvements to the Curling Club; YMCA of Hamilton/Burlington/Brantford will receive $100,000.00 for the rehabilitation of Camp Wanakita in Haliburton; the County of Haliburton will receive $100,000.00 to repair the Howland Junction Bridge on the Haliburton Rail Trail; and The Academy Theatre Foundation will receive $110,000.00 for rehabilitation of the Academy Theatre’s seating.

“These types of projects with long-term benefits are perfectly suited to Canada150 funding,” added Schmale. “I look forward to working on behalf of constituents to ensure Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock continues to receive funding for projects like these throughout the region.”
