The County of Brant received $750,000 in funding from the Government of Canada through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario).
The funding was used towards costs associated with building the new TF Warren Group Cainsville Community Centre, including to construct accessible, barrier free entryways and washrooms, energy efficient lighting, outdoor patio space and greenery.
“Congratulations to the County of Brant on the official opening of the TF Warren Group Cainsville Community Centre. This new, modern community centre will give both residents and visitors a space to gather and play and will be a staple in the community for generations to come” said the Honourable Filomena Tassi, Minister responsible for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario). “The Government of Canada is thrilled to invest in community centres that give people a place to come together and enjoy.”
“We are incredibly grateful to the Government of Canada for providing this funding opportunity,” said Mayor David Bailey. “This facility will become a hub for both the local community and the County, as a whole, and the opportunities that this space will provide are endless. Many special events, celebrations, recreation, support groups, meetings and more will be hosted in this space. It’s truly a beautiful place for the community to gather together.”
The Centre’s construction cost was approximately $5.1 million, and the successful fundraising campaign achieved over $1.6 million in donations.
The community is invited to join us on Saturday, July 1, 2023, for a Grand Opening Celebration at the TF Warren Group Cainsville Community Centre. A ceremony will take place at 11:30 am followed by a free barbeque and family-friendly activities until 2:00 pm.
