Grant For McLean's Park

It was with great excitement that the Township of Assiginack received the news that their application to the RBC’s Learn to Play grant program was successful. The Township received a cheque for $22,500 to make McLean’s Park a year round attraction for physical activity for residents and tourists alike.

RBC’s Learn to Play Project is all about improving physical literacy among children. They believe that physical literacy is as important to a child’s development as reading and writing. The more physical literate a child is, the more likely they will participate in sport and physical activities and this will help build confidence and self esteem.

With this in mind, the Township of Assiginack decided to put forward a grant application titled ‘Bike, Hike, Snowshoe and Ski’. This grant will allow the Township to clean up the trails and make them accessible so that all four activities can take place thus making it a year round park for physical activity. Not only that, but it will provide the necessary funding for proper signage, picnic tables, bicycle stands and a class set of snowshoes to be lent out to user groups.


We are hoping to begin this spring with the necessary renovations and hope to have it ready for the summer.

We Have a Winner!

Our Early Am Breakfast and Hockey program ended today but the kids sure had fun!

Partnering with Noojmowin Teg Health Centre, we were able to hold early morning hockey practices for the past three Mondays, followed by breakfast after.


Mark Peltier of Noojmowin Teg ran through 30 minutes of great and new hockey drills with the kids, followed by 15 minutes of scrimmage. We had kids as young as 6 and as old as 12 come out.


The kids loved it when it was time to play a game!


After they quickly got dressed and went out to the atrium for a yummy breakfast prepared by Melanie!


The final excitement came when we drew the name to see who would win the four Sudbury Wolves tickets!  Matthew G. won and was he ever excited!


Thanks Noojmowin Teg Health Centre, it was great working together with another community to make things happen!
