WINNIPEG — The St. Norbert Farmers’ Market is receiving $250,000 from the province to upgrade and expand its washroom facilities.
The Manitoba government’s investment is part of a larger $600,000 pool to fund various other projects in southwest Winnipeg.
“Community centres, parks and recreation facilities provide access for families to take part in activities and a variety of social functions that form strong bonds in communities,” said Children and Youth Opportunities Minister Kevin Chief, minister responsible for the City of Winnipeg.
The washroom design will utilize three reclaimed 40-foot shipping containers as the main construction component for men’s, women’s and accessible/family washroom facility.
Other organizations in southwest Winnipeg that are receiving funding include the Royal Canadian Legion Fort Garry #90, École Riverview Parent Advisory Council, St. Avila Home and School Association, St. Norbert Biz, St. Norbert Arts Centre, Osborne Village Biz, Chabad-Lubavitch Jewish Learning Centre, Assiniboine Park Conservancy, Hellenic Greek Orthodox Church of Winnipeg, Italian Canadian Centre of Manitoba Inc. and Harrow United Church.
