GOVERNMENT OF CANADA INVESTS IN THE NORTHERN YACHT CLUB

NORTH SYDNEY (NS) – November 27, 2009– Young sailors on the Northside will soon benefit from improved sailing facilities, thanks to an investment of over $133,000 from the Government of Canada, through Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation (ECBC). The announcement was made today by the Honourable Peter MacKay, Minister of National Defence and Minister for the Atlantic Gateway.

“Our government is committed to building stronger communities and helping young people live healthier and more active lives,” said Minister MacKay. “This investment in the Northern Yacht Club makes a positive impact on the local economy and enables the facility to host sailing events that attract participants, their families and spectators to the area.”

The Northern Yacht Club (NYC) Junior Sailing Association will convert its existing building into a facility suitable for hosting junior sailing programs and events. The project involves the construction of an office, washrooms, showers, classrooms and a loft for judging events. Renovations also include new roofing, siding, landscaping, wheelchair accessibility to the wharf, and the construction of a storage pen for boats during competitions.

“These much needed infrastructure upgrades will help us attract and host regional and national sailing events, increase the number of trained instructors and volunteers, and collaborate with other Cape Breton sailing organizations to develop the local sailing sector,” said Paula MacNeil Smith, Director at the NYC. 

The total cost of the project is $178,171. The Government of Canada, through ECBC, is investing $133,925.

Established in 1924, the NYC Junior Sailing Association provided canoeing, swimming and aquatic activities to the community. During the 1960s, the club began offering junior sailing instruction and continues to offer instruction to children and young adults.

Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation offers programs in support of economic development initiatives and is responsible for delivering ACOA’s programs on Cape Breton Island and the Mulgrave area.
