August 10, 2021

Bolton, Ontario
– David Tilson, Member of Parliament for Dufferin-Caledon and Liz Sandals, Member of Provincial Parliament for Guelph, announced today that Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA) will benefit from joint Federal and Provincial investment of $66,000, for trail enhancements to the Albion Hills Conservation Area, under the Recreational Infrastructure Canada program in Ontario (RInC Ontario) and Recreation Ontario (Ontario REC).

Mr. Tilson and Ms. Sandals made the announcement at the Albion Hills Conservation Area, in Palgrave, to members of TRCA. Town of Caledon Regional Councillors, Richard Whitehead and Allan Thompson, were also present.

“Recreational infrastructure strengthens our communities, both physically and economically,” said Mr. Tilson. “These projects will bring communities together to get fit and have fun, as well as create local jobs, something this government is committed to doing.”

“Albion Hills Conservation Area is home to one of the most extensive mountain biking and cross country skiing trail networks in Ontario," said MPP Liz Sandals. "This recreation infrastructure funding will create jobs in the short term, and provide improved recreational trails for thousands of Ontarians to enjoy for years to come."

“We are excited to receive the RInC funding which will ultimately benefit the thousands of outdoor enthusiasts who visit Albion Hills, Ontario’s first conservation area,” said Gerri Lynn O’Connor, Chair, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority.

This project is one of 758 projects that have been announced by Minister of State (Science and Technology) Gary Goodyear, on behalf of the Honourable Tony Clement, Minister of Industry, and Ontario Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Leona Dombrowsky, on behalf of George Smitherman, Ontario Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, worth a total joint Federal and Provincial investment of more than $380 Million

These programs were designed to provide a timely, targeted stimulus to the economy through investments that will spur construction activity related to existing recreational infrastructure. Beyond economic stimulus and job creation, renewing, rehabilitating and modernizing our recreational infrastructure has the additional benefit of encouraging higher levels of participation in physical activity and community building.

Projects were selected on the basis of merit and construction readiness.
