August 11, 2021

Bolton, ON
— David Tilson, Member of Parliament for Dufferin-Caledon announced today that the Town of Caledon will benefit from joint Federal and Provincial investment of $1,782,000, for the expansion of the Youth Centre at the Caledon Centre for Recreation and Wellness, under the Recreational Infrastructure Canada program in Ontario (RInC Ontario) and Recreation Ontario (Ontario REC).

Mr. Tilson made the announcement at the Wellness Centre, in Bolton, to Town of Caledon Mayor, Marolyn Morrison, and to several members of Council in attendance, as well as members and partners of Caledon Youth Services.
“Recreational facilities are essential social and athletic hubs in our communities. They bring us together as families, friends, and neighbours to have fun and to stay active,” said Mr. Tilson. “By investing in these types of projects, our Government is investing in the health and well-being of residents across Ontario.”
 “Caledon’s young people make great use of our Youth Centre. With this funding, we are exited to begin the expansion of the facility and add more recreational space to meet to meet the needs of our youth. On behalf of Council and the residents of  Caledon – both young and young at heart – our thanks to MP David Tilson and MPP Sylvia Jones for their efforts in securing this funding,” said Mayor Morrison.

This project is one of 758 projects 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.
