From roads and buildings, to sports and community centres – robust infrastructure is key to building stronger and more resilient communities. Investments in modern and sustainable sports and community infrastructure helps keep our communities healthy, active and connected.
That is why the Government of Canada, the Government of Prince Edward Island and the City of Charlottetown are investing over $24.4 million to replace the current Charlottetown Simmons Sports Centre with a modern, accessible and sustainable facility through the Green Infrastructure Stream (GIS).
As Canada moves toward a strong recovery, this project will help Charlottetown remain a great place to live, work and play, and ensure long-term infrastructure performance.
With this funding, the new Simmons Sports Centre will include a new NHL sized single ice pad arena, a 25-metre outdoor swimming pool, and an indoor walking track, as well as ancillary infrastructure such as: fixed seating of more than 300, dressing rooms, a community/multi-purpose room, warming room, elevators, kitchen area, staff office space, parking and outdoor washrooms.
