Minister Joly Announces Investment of More Than $450,000 in Support of Francophone Community in Timmins, Ontario

TIMMINS, Ontario - Our two official languages are valuable assets for all Canadians. They are a source of economic, social and cultural benefits for everyone. That is why the Government of Canada is committed to supporting the development of Anglophone and Francophone minority communities across the country.
 
The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Tourism, Official Languages and La Francophonie, announced funding for cultural and community projects in Francophone communities in Northern Ontario.
 
The Government of Canada is proud to invest more than $450,000 to the Centre culturel La Ronde in Timmins, which was destroyed following a fire in November 2015. The funding includes an investment of $196,875, through the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund, in the Centre culturel La Ronde to support the plan and design of its new facility in Timmins. The centre will also receive $216,000 over three years, through official languages support programs, to support its general programming. In addition, it will receive $42,000 over three years, through the Canada Arts Presentation Fund, to support its artistic programming.
