I am proud that the fam­i­lies in my com­mu­nity will be able to have enjoyable mo­ments of re­cre­ation for years to come thanks to this new com­mu­nity in­fra­struc­ture.” The Hon­ourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Min­is­ter of In­ter­na­tional Devel­op­ment and La Fran­co­phonie and Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment for Comp­ton—Stanstead

Key lo­cal stake­hold­ers have long been ask­ing for con­crete, sus­tain­able mea­sures to im­prove com­mu­nity and recre­ational in­fra­struc­ture. The Gov­ern­ment of Canada is proud to in­vest in projects that, like this one in Ge­orgeville, con­trib­ute to the strength and vi­tal­ity of all re­gions of the coun­try.

Act­ing on be­half of the Hon­ourable Navdeep Bains, Min­is­ter of In­no­va­tion, Sci­ence and Eco­nomic Devel­op­ment and Min­is­ter re­spon­si­ble for CED, the Hon­ourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Min­is­ter of In­ter­na­tional Devel­op­ment and La Fran­co­phonie and Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment for Comp­ton—Stanstead, today an­nounced that As­so­ci­a­tion com­mu­nau­taire de Ge­orgeville has been granted $25,000 in fund­ing for the pur­chase and in­stal­la­tion of new chil­dren’s play struc­tures in Copp’s Square.

For over 40 years, this not-for-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion, which op­er­ates Mur­ray Me­mo­rial Com­mu­nity Hall, Copp’s Square and a sum­mer camp, has been or­ga­niz­ing recre­ational, cul­tural and com­mu­nity ac­tiv­i­ties for the res­i­dents of Ge­orgeville as well as so­cial events to vi­tal­ize the com­mu­nity. The non-re­payable con­tri­bu­tion, awarded through the Canada 150 Com­mu­nity In­fra­struc­ture Pro­gram (CIP 150), will en­able it to ac­quire and in­stall new play mod­ules for chil­dren aged 5 to 12 years.
