Ontario Supporting Township of Schreiber Revitalization Projects

Posted on March 13, 2018

 

The province will fund the construction of a new 1,360-square foot North Shore Express Discovery Centre. The centre will highlight the township’s historical ties to the railway industry by featuring a diesel locomotive and will include a museum and visitor centre. In addition, the province is investing in tourism signage, as well as downtown revitalization, including storm water drainage upgrades, new benches and a new gazebo.
Ontario is also investing in the town of Schreiber’s Clearwell project through the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund. Once complete, the project will ensure that all residents of Schreiber will have access to safe drinking water.

 

Ontario is investing $2,150,000 in Schreiber through the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC) Strategic Economic Infrastructure Program.

 

Ontario is investing up to $1.03 million through the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund in the town of Schreiber’s Clearwell project.

 

“Our government recognizes that improving community infrastructure and tourism attractions is vital to the economy of many northern communities. Today’s investments in Terrace Bay and Schreiber will make these communities even more exciting places and will have a lasting impact for tourists and locals alike.”

— Michael Gravelle, Minister of Northern Development and Mines and MPP Thunder Bay-Superior North

 

“We thank Minister Gravelle and the province for these very important investments in our community. Our revitalization project is an essential component of Schreiber’s tourism strategy and aligns with other attractions in our beautiful Lake Superior North Shore region. The additional support from the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund will allow us to keep a safe supply of fresh treated drinking water for our residents.”

— Mark Figliomeni, Mayor, Township of Schreiber
