Ontario is creating more opportunities for children and seniors stay active by boosting sport and recreation programming in Cambridge.
This year, the province is supporting 127 sport and recreation projects through the Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund and its new Active for Life Recreation stream aimed at getting seniors moving.
Skate Cambridge will receive $73,028 for an intergenerational and multi-cultural program encouraging families to become active through the Skate Cambridge program. Over 2,400 participants are expected join the program. As well, it will train 32 staff.
The fund supports one or two-year projects that will increase opportunities for people of all ages to become more active, by helping them learn new skills and encouraging lifelong physical activity.
“Congratulations to Skate Cambridge, which helps keep our citizens active and engaged. This new funding will continue our community’s legacy of fit and vibrant residents who make Cambridge a great place to live," said Kathryn McGarry, MPP Cambridge .
Ontario's plan to support care, create opportunity and make life more affordable during this period of rapid economic change includes free prescription drugs for everyone under 25, and 65 or over, through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation, free tuition for hundreds of thousands of students, a higher minimum wage and better working conditions, and free preschool child care from 2 ½ to kindergarten.
