The Churchill Town Centre Complex is receiving major repairs funded by the Manitoba government.
The 225,000-square-foot facility is home to a number of services and amenities in the northern community, including a school, hospital, personal care home, arena, theatre, bowling alley, curling rink, child-care centre, gymnasium, radio station, industrial arts centre, library, playground, pool and fitness centre.
“This centre is an important hub for Churchill residents and those from surrounding communities, providing everything from recreation activity to hospital and personal care,” said Municipal Relations Minister Jeff Wharton.
“Due to harsh weather conditions and storm damage, extensive maintenance is required to stabilize and protect the centre, and ensure a clean and safe environment.”
The province will repair the CTCC’s roof, with other work being prioritized and completed in multiple phases.
The theatre will also be renovated to remove mould and asbestos, which caused it to temporarily close.
The exact cost of the repairs isn’t yet known until tenders go out.
Repairs to the roof and theatre are scheduled to be completed by fall of 2018.
