ONTARIO 150 COMMUNITY CAPITAL PROGRAM GRANT
March 1, 2017 - Ontario is celebrating its 150th anniversary as a province by improving and renovating over 200 sports facilities, parks, seniors centres, and other community spaces, bringing positive changes to communities and families across the province. The Township of O’Connor would like to announce that our application to the Ontario Trillium Foundation ( OTF ) Ontario 150 Community Capital Program grant has been approved and we will be receiving $34,500.00 to upgrade the HVAC system and make other interior upgrades to the O’ Connor Community Centre. This will include air conditioning in the centre.
Thank you to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for this opportunity.
Update July 10, 2017 - A public announcement of this funding was made at the O'Connor Community Club's annual Strawberry Festival held on July 8, 2017 in the O'Connor Community Centre. A banner and plaque, also announcing this funding, are being displayed in the Centre as well.

The O'Connor Community Centre now has new energy efficient propane furnaces and air conditioning, new washroom partitions have been installed in the basement washrooms and the storage room has been repainted and new shelving installed, along with better air circulation. Thank you to the Ontario 150 Community Capital Program Grant once again for this opportunity to continue to approve our O'Connor Community Centre and make it a more inviting public space to come to for all social events, both public or private in our community.
