Monday, December 10, 2018

The governments of Canada and Nova Scotia are providing $5.5 million in joint funding towards building a new community and cultural centre in the municipality of Digby.

The Jordantown-Acaciaville-Conway Betterment Association Community Centre will span over 14,000 square feet, and will feature designated areas for a pre-school, youth and adult learning, as well as cultural and recreational programming.

The federal government will provide over $1.6 million towards this project, while Nova Scotia will contribute over $3.7 million. The Municipality of the District of Digby is set to provide the balance of project costs, with the Town of Digby providing donations in kind.

“This is another step towards building a more inclusive, welcoming and equitable province for all Nova Scotians,” said the Honourable Tony Ince, Minister of African Nova Scotian Affairs, in a press release. “This new centre will be the hub for the community offering educational, recreational and cultural programing for generations to come.”

The government of Canada says the construction of this community centre will bring a renewed sense of community to the region, providing new opportunities for residents and visitors to connect and share experiences.
