Province funding new bathrooms at St. Norbert market

  • Print

The provincial government announced roughly $600,000 in improvements to public and not-for-profit community facilities today.

The money, part of the Winnipeg Community Infrastructure Program, will go towards renovations and maintenance of some of the city's recreational and green spaces, according to a release by the province. These sites can include "community centres, parks, trails, bike paths, arenas and gyms," the release stated.

A big part of the money will go towards expanding washroom facilities at St. Norbert Farmers' Market. Three shipping containers will be repurposed to create the washrooms, in order to be environmentally friendly, the release stated.

Other sites benefitting from the money include Royal Canadian Legion Fort Garry #90, École Riverview Parent Advisory Council, St. Avila Home and School Association, St. Norbert Biz, St. Norbert Arts Centre, Osborne Village Biz, Chabad-Lubavitch Jewish Learning Centre, Assiniboine Park Conservancy, Hellenic Greek Orthodox Church of Winnipeg, Italian Canadian Centre of Manitoba Inc. and Harrow United Church.
