Brampton – Sonia Sidhu, MP for Brampton South, on behalf of Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities, and Patrick Brown, Mayor of Brampton, announced over $15.7 million in funding for retrofits to the Susan Fennell Sportsplex in Brampton.

“The upgrades to the Susan Fennell Sportsplex will provide Brampton residents with a modern and energy efficient facility where they can come together, access programming, and stay active. Our Government will continue to invest in infrastructure projects that strengthen our communities and grow our economy,” said Sonia Sidhu, Member of Parliament for Brampton South, on behalf of Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities.

“Thank you to our partners at the Government of Canada for their investment in energy-efficient upgrades for Susan Fennell Sportsplex. Brampton is a Green City, and we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and being a leader in sustainability. This investment will help us reduce fuel consumption and lower greenhouse gas emissions, and provide our residents with a modern and energy efficient facility where they can enjoy our great recreational programs and maintain a healthy and active lifestyle,” said Patrick Brown, Mayor of the City of Brampton.

Funding will support upgrades to increase the energy efficiency of the community centre. Work involves replacing the facility’s refrigeration plants, HVAC system, and lighting. It will also include the installation of a battery energy storage system, a ground source heat pump, and a 600-kilowatt solar energy system. These retrofits will reduce fuel consumption and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 932 tonnes annually.

Once complete, the renewed Susan Fennell Sportsplex will provide residents in Brampton with a modern and energy efficient facility where they can access community and recreational programs and maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
