The three levels of government committed funding Friday to an expansion of the fitness centre at Brandon University.
The $18 million complex will include two full-scale gymnasiums, new weight training equipment, an indoor walking track and an athletic therapy centre.
The facility will be double the size of its current space and be located adjacent to the existing centre.
The province and federal government are kicking in about $5 million each, with the City of Brandon and the university covering the rest.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Premier Greg Selinger and Mayor Dave Burgess were joined by other dignitaries and MPs, including university president Dr. Deborah Poff, to make the announcement.
