West Parry Sound Recreation & Cultural Centre Background

Residents, businesses, community leaders and politicians have been talking about bringing a pool and recreation centre to the West Parry Sound region for decades. In June 2021, provincial and federal governments committed to invest $23.3 million in the project –a huge milestone for the community.

The $32 million capital project is being funded at 73% through an Investing in Canada Infrastructure (ICIP) grant. The six participating partner municipalities are contributing the remaining 27% based on an allocation formula that recognizes population, number of households, taxable assessment and driving distance. Ongoing operation of the centre will use the same funding formula. Learn more about how we got here in the information below.

West Parry Sound Recreation & Culture Centre Board

This board includes representation from all municipal and First Nations partners. The most recent meeting of the board can be found in the video to the right. 

Meeting Agendas and Documents

Here you will find various background documents and meeting recordings, chronicling various stages of the project.

The West Parry Sound Recreation and Cultural Centre Board acts as an agent on behalf of six area municipalities:  The Archipelago, Carling, McDougall, McKellar, Parry Sound and Seguin, and two non-voting First Nations: Shawanaga and Wasauksing. Board meetings are open to the public, livestreamed on the Town of Parry Sound YouTube page and recorded.  They will be shared here as well.
