NORTH SYDNEY CULTURE AND HERITAGE COMMUNITY CENTRE OFFICIALLY OPENS WITH GOVERNMENT OF CANADA SUPPORT

SYDNEY (NS) – August 17, 2011 – The North Sydney Culture and Heritage Community Centre officially opened today, thanks to an investment by the Government of Canada through Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation (ECBC).

“Our Government is committed to working with communities to better position them for economic growth,” said the Honourable Rob Nicholson, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, on behalf of the Honourable Bernard Valcourt, Minister of State for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) and La Francophonie. “This facility contributes to the revitalization of downtown North Sydney and will serve as a catalyst for future economic development.”  

The Culture and Heritage Community Centre is a newly constructed facility located in the heart of downtown North Sydney, NS, a short distance from the Marine Atlantic Ferry Terminal. It is the new home of the North Sydney Museum, the Wilfred Oram Centennial Library, the Business Improvement Development Association as well as the North Sydney Senior Citizens’ and Pensioners’ Club. The building also features office space for rent and a board room for community use.

Construction of the 1,068 m˛ (11,500 sq. ft.) Centre started in 2009. The project was spearheaded by the North Sydney Historical Society, a volunteer-based organization dedicated to the collection and preservation of local history, and facilitated through the Cape Breton County Economic Development Authority.

“The official opening of the Centre represents a significant milestone for the North Sydney Historical Society,” said Ron MacDonald, past Chairperson. “This project is the result of a great deal of hard work by many community-minded people. We are pleased to provide the community with a cultural amenity that will benefit both residents and visitors to the area.”

The total cost of the new facility is $1,497,500. The Government of Canada, through ECBC has contributed $1 million.

Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation offers programs in support of economic development initiatives and is responsible for delivering ACOA’s programs on Cape Breton Island and in the Mulgrave area.
