$100,000 coming for non-profits

  • Print

Residents of St. Vital are active citizens who care about their community. Organizations and volunteers dedicate endless hours to projects that benefit the whole community.
Through the provincial Community Places and Sports Opportunities programs, I am pleased to share that 10 non-profit organizations in St. Vital will receive collectively over $100,000 in funding.

I am glad that many funds will be going toward supporting children and youth.  Little Saints Learning Center Inc. is a facility that provides care to four infant and 34 pre-school children.  

To provide a more hygienic and durable setting, carpet was removed and was replaced with vinyl flooring. Victor H. L. Wyatt School Parent Council will receive funds that will go toward renovating their community school’s existing play structure to create universal access. Windsor School will be replacing its old wooden play structure with an accessible one.

Teen Stop Jeunesse Inc. provides opportunities for teens as well as adults in the forms of personal development and growth, including education and training in preparation for post-secondary education or entry into the workforce.  

We are providing financial assistance to upgrade the building, which partners with:   E.D.G.E., Morrow Child Care and St. Vital Education Centre.

Our community centres are at the heart of St. Vital, so I am pleased that Glenwood Community Centre Inc. will receive arena upgrades. This is a well-used facility that is fully booked year-round.  

Another popular community centre, Norberry-Glenlee, will receive basketball nets, volleyball safety pads, and badminton posts/nets. The Barbara Mitchell Family Resource Centre will receive green space development and youth drop-in program equipment.  
Also, the Marlene Street Tenants Association Inc. will benefit from expendable sporting equipment. Finally, Nanaksar Satsang Sabha Inc. will receive support to construct an addition to Gurdwara Nanaksar Sikh Temple.

Promoting and participating in community-driven programs and projects is the best part of my job and they reflect the values our government brings to the province of Manitoba.
To get more information about any of these projects or to share your ideas and concerns, please contact my office at 51D St. Anne’s Rd., Winnipeg, R2M 2Y4, 204-237-8771, or by email at:
