The Canadian and Quebec Governments Are Backing The Library Renovation Project

Conseil - Subvention bibliothèque 2019

Dollard-des-Ormeaux, January 22, 2019. – The Canada and Quebec governments know what a key role cultural infrastructures play in the development of dynamic and prosperous communities.

The Pierrefonds-Dollard MP, Mr. Frank Baylis, and the Sainte-Rose MLA, Mr. Christopher Skeete, announced today that the Canadian and Quebec governments will each invest a sum of $1.3 million to renovate and expand the Dollard-des-Ormeaux library as well as bring it up to code.

The grant comes from the New Building Canada Fund – Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component – Small Communities Fund. The City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux is dedicating $2.4 million in this undertaking, which represents a governmental-municipal investment totalling $5 million.

Built 25 years ago, the Dollard-des-Ormeaux library needs to be modernized to offer adequate services to satisfy its users. On top of renovating the general state of the building and its accessibility, the work will also include an expansion of over 199 m2, which will be used to offer more sitting room and workstations for users as well as create a computer lab. An exterior garden and spaces reserved for children are also planned.

The renovation will also allow the library to actively participate in the social inclusion of numerous cultural communities in the area as well as be more accessible to people with disabilities.
