A message from MP Yasir Naqvi – Dovercourt $150,000 Grant

10 02 2016

Dear friends,

Today, I formally announced that the Dovercourt Recreation Association (DRA) has received a $150,000 Capital grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF). I was proud to join OTF volunteer James Puddicombe at the Dovercourt Recreation Centre to talk more about the DRA’s exciting plans for its building expansion project.

I believe that the Dovercourt Recreation Centre is a unique and essential facility in Westboro and is very deserving of the $150,000 in capital funding from Ontario Trillium Foundation. This investment will go into much-needed new expansion that would directly impact the lives of 50,000 people in our community.

The grant will go towards creating more space for the centre. The south-facing wall and existing boardroom will be expanded towards the sidewalk on Dovercourt Avenue, bathroom facilities will be built, and programming space will be doubled. A total of 3,000 square feet will be added to Dovercourt’s existing space.

The leading grant making foundation in Canada, the Ontario Trillium Foundation strengthens the capacity of the voluntary sector through investments in community-based initiatives. An agency of the Government of Ontario, OTF builds healthy and vibrant communities: www.otf.ca

If you have any questions regarding this announcement, please do not hesitate to contact my office – ynaqvi.mpp.co@liberal.ola.org or 613 722 6414.
