April 29, 2022 - Guelph, Ontario
Community infrastructure is vital to the health of our communities and the quality of life for Canadians. The Government of Canada is committed to supporting the growth of local communities to position them for a strong and resilient economic future.
Today, the Honourable Helena Jaczek, Minister responsible for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario), announced over $2.6 million in support for eight community infrastructure and tourism projects in Guelph and Wellington County under the Canada Community Revitalization Fund (CCRF) and Tourism Relief Fund (TRF). With this investment, recipients will build and enhance community infrastructure or help tourism entities and communities safely welcome back visitors.
The announcement was made at an event hosted by the City of Guelph, which received a non-repayable contribution of $750,000 to reinvent and revitalize Riverside Park and its attractions, including the park bandshell, washrooms and an amusement train ride.
