Description & Services

Information
In 2009, Federal, Provincial and Municipal levels of government collectively committed $31 million toward the construction of a new multi-purpose complex to support the sport, health and wellness, business, educational and social needs of the residents of Pictou County. 
 
Site preparation for the new complex officially commenced August 8, 2010, as Canada’s Minister of National Defence, Peter MacKay, turned the sod at the intersection of MacGregor and Westville Roads in New Glasgow. The new Centre is slated to open in late 2012. Federal, Provincial and Municipal governments have committed $11 million, $11 million and $9 million, respectively. 
 
At a total projected cost of $35 million, the balance of funds needed to complete the Centre will be raised through a communities-wide fundraising campaign. 
 
The Centre will support ice and aquatic sports; community fitness and wellness programs; youth programming; local events; business meetings and conferences; and the newly relocated Pictou County YMCA. It is described as a contemporary, world class, multi-purpose sport, health and wellness, business and educational gathering place. The Centre’s forward-thinking design will bring citizens of Pictou County together for social, recreational and athletic pursuits, and will help further the region’s status as a desirable place to live and work.
