$14-million funding for Lawrence Heights community hub

I'm happy to report that the Province of Ontario has committed to investing $14 million to build a new Lawrence Heights Community Centre.

As your local City Councillor, I joined MPP Mike Colle (on behalf of Bob Chiarelli, Minister of Infrastructure) and MP Marco Mendicino in announcing this wonderful news, representing the shared commitment and collaboration of the federal, provincial and municipal governments in making the creation of this future community hub a key priority.


"The investment in the Lawrence Heights and Lawrence-Allen area is a big win for our community.  Through funding and support, we will provide a healthy recreation-focused hub for community members to visit and enjoy."

- MPP Mike Colle


This future community hub will be a critical building block in the revitalized Lawrence Heights and help connect the neighbourhood to the surrounding community.

The hub will feature:

  • A pool / aquatic area
  • Double gymnasium with running track
  • Multi-purpose rooms (e.g., dance room, weight room, etc.)
  • Administration and office space

This funding commitment is a massive step forward in the creation of the future Lawrence Heights Community Hub, and I'm hopeful that this space will foster connections and strengthen the health, well-being, cultural bonds and future of our community.

I will let you know of updates as this project progresses, and I look forward to joining you in our future community hub.
