McGuinty Government Supports Multi-Use Facility Expansion

A focal point of Kapuskasing community life  is undergoing important renovations with the help of the Ontario government.

The Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC) has provided $597,400 from its Infrastructure and Community Development Program toward the expansion of the Kapuskasing Civic Center. The project is focusing on the auditorium and improving the accessibility to the building.

These enhancements are part of a larger initiative involving the expansion and renovation of other civic centre functions and services to the public.
