Ontario’s Government for the People is supporting the York Curling Club non-profit organization in Newmarket-Aurora to improve community spaces in the province and expand or adapt projects that are already making a difference in the community.
MPP Christine Elliott announced that the York Curling Club will receive a total of $150,000 toward infrastructure improvements through the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
“These organizations are delivering initiatives that are already contributing to strong social and cultural communities in Newmarket,” said Elliott, MPP for Newmarket-Aurora. “Through the Ontario Trillium Foundation, our Government for the People is helping them to expand these initiatives, which means they will benefit even more residents in the region.”
The province’s investment in these not-for-profit projects is expected to bring positive change to 2,000 people in Newmarket-Aurora.
“It is encouraging to see the great work of so many non-profit organizations in our province,” said Michael Tibollo, Minister of Tourism, Culture, and Sport. “I am delighted that our Government for the People is supporting their valuable projects. Through the Ontario Trillium Foundation, we are bringing economic, social, environmental and health benefits to people across Ontario.”

The York Curling Club has been serving York Region for over 63 years and this grant will ensure that we can continue to offer competitive and recreational Curling in an affordable way to the entire community,” said Wayne Brakeboer, President, York Curling Club.
