Terrace Bay Builds New Community Centre

McGuinty Government Helps Improve Community Infrastructure

Residents of Terrace Bay will soon be able to come together and participate in important community activities and events at a new multi-use community centre.

Through Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC) assistance, the town will renovate the former St. Martin school.  The new facility will offer a number of services for children and adults such as recreational activities, community gatherings and computer training.  In addition, it will have improved accessibility and be the new home for the town's library and the Superior Seniors Club. 

Construction will create about 26 jobs and strengthen the local economy.  The centre is scheduled to open in March 2010.

Quick Facts

  • The NOHFC is providing $311,300 for this project under its Infrastructure and Community Development Program, which helps northern communities improve critical infrastructure, create jobs and improve economic prospects.
  • The project includes upgrading the washrooms, kitchen and the town's largest auditorium.
