South Glen­garry re­cently re­ceived a $13,000 fed­eral grant to help off­set the com­bined cost of an en­abling ac­ces­si­bil­ity project for three of its mu­nic­i­pal fa­cil­i­ties.

The funds, granted through the Min­istry of Em­ploy­ment and So­cial De­vel­op­ment Canada (ESDC), will cover the ma­jor­ity of the $19,000 re­quired to in­stall new au­to­matic push pad doors at the Green Val­ley, Lan­caster and Mart­in­town com­mu­nity cen­tres. “It’s an­other small part of mov­ing to­wards the (up­pertier gov­ern­ment man­dated) ac­ces­si­bil­ity stan­dards,” ex­plains Ewen Mac­Don­ald, the town­ship’s gen­eral man­ager of in­fra­struc­ture ser­vices.
