Kenora MP Greg Rickford was in Wabigoon yesterday for two announcements.

Through the Enabling Accessibility Fund, the Wabigoon Local Services Board received an investment of $5,000 to build a multi-sensory room in the Wabigoon Memorial Hall.

"The Local Services Board of Wabigoon, along with the Wabigoon Memorial Hall committee, are grateful for the funding we received through Employment and Social Development Canada, which will enable us to move forward with renovations for our multi-sensory room located in the basement of the Wabigoon Hall," said Arlene Williams, Wabigoon Local Services Board Member.

The second investment of $25,000, through the New Horizons for Seniors Program, will be used to renovate the outdoor ramp and the men’s washroom to make their Memorial Hall safer for seniors to continue participating in social activities such as the Bridging our Futures program.

"I am very pleased to be announcing our Government’s investments in the community of Wabigoon. The Wabigoon Memorial Hall is the foundation for this community, providing programs and services as well as hosting events for seniors, children and everyone in between," said Rickford.
