Provincial government supports new ice arena

Posted: July 23, 2007

Briercrest College and Seminary received a grant of $68,925 from the Building Communities Program for use in constructing a new ice arena to provide recreational and competitive athletic opportunities for students of Briercrest College and Seminary and Caronport High School, the village of Caronport, and surrounding areas. The award was presented to Merrill Dyck, VP of Finance and Operations at Briercrest, by Moose Jaw North MLA Glenn Hagel in a ceremony held in the Archibald Library on Wednesday, July 18, 2007.

“We know that cultural and recreational activities are the heart of our communities and our government is pleased to contribute to the vibrancy of the Moose Jaw area. This investment is one more way we are making life better in Saskatchewan and ensuring our young people have a place to build strong futures.”
- Glenn Hagel

The grant is part of a $100 million initiative by the Building Communities Program to improve recreational and cultural facilities in communities across the province. In order to receive support from the program, community projects must have a regional approach, a sound business plan, and other financial partners.
