baseballThe baseball diamonds project in Village Limoges has received a grant through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program, “a $300-million national program which is being delivered by regional development agencies across the country.” The 2017 funding announcement was part of a $53,033 grant for the St. Albert Community Centre and Rodolphe Latreille Park in Village Limoges, both of which are located in The Nation Municipality.

“The Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program is ensuring residents here in Limoges and St-Albert have access to improved community spaces,” said Francis Drouin, Member of Parliament for Glengarry-Prescott-Russell. “The St-Albert Community Centre and the Rodolphe Latreille Ball Diamond are both important community hubs. These improvements will ensure that the residents of St-Albert and Limoges can continue to enjoy these spaces for years to come.”

Projects were selected based on eligibility requirements and selection criteria as outlined in the program guidelines including: project readiness; project scope; funding leveraged from other sources; and the extent to which projects supported a clean growth economy.

“The Nation Municipality is pleased to work with the federal government under the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program,” François St-Amour, Mayor, The Nation Municipality. “The funds that we will receive will ensure the security and improvement of the St-Albert Community Centre as well as a second ball diamond in Limoges, where the growing population requires increased recreation infrastructure.”
