As part of the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program the City of Leduc is receiving $250,000 to help upgrade a community staple.

The funds will go toward upgrading the interior and exterior of the Mix Family Aquatic Centre.

“We appreciate the Government of Canada’s commitment into this partnership to help ensure facilities, such as the Mix Family Aquatic Centre, are available for citizens and visitors for many years to come. With a total investment of $500,000, we’re able to do the upgrades and improvements needed at the aquatic centre in the Leduc Recreation Centre,” stated Leduc mayor Greg Krischke in a press release.

The announcement of the $25,000 for Leduc’s aquatic centre was made July 29 and Government of Canada’s Economic Action Plan 2015 stated the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program is committing $150 million for community infrastructure.

The infrastructure-driven initiative is a portion of the legacy the Canadian government is preparing to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017.

“A healthy and thriving community requires the necessary facilities and outdoor spaces to ensure that the community is able to stay fit and active. Thanks to our Government’s investment in upgrades to the Leduc Recreation Centre, we are helping to foster an energized and positive community while creating jobs and growth,” said Mike Lake, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Industry and Member of Parliament for Edmonton – Mill Woods – Beaumont.
