The federal government has announced $36 million for renovations at Ottawa’s Mouvement d’implication francophone d’Orléans (MIFO) community center.

“The revitalization of the Mouvement d’implication francophone d’Orléans (MIFO) community center is much more than a simple project,” said sad Randy Boissonnault, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Official Languages. “It’s an investment in the very heart of an official language minority community. By supporting this initiative, we’re strengthening inclusive, dynamic spaces where everyone can flourish.

“This investment demonstrates our commitment to the cultural and social vitality of our community, ensuring a flourishing future for MIFO.”

Designed to be net-zero carbon, the facility will house a gymnasium, auditorium, classrooms, indoor running track, art gallery, meeting rooms and more, which will provide space for recreational activities that help to foster a sense of togetherness.

“I am thrilled to see our commitment to community development in action through the revitalization of the MIFO facility,” said Marie-France Lalonde, MP for Orléans. “This investment reflects our dedication to providing accessible and eco-responsible spaces that empower local communities, fostering a future that is not only greener and more prosperous but also rich in artistic opportunity.

“This much needed facility is key to supporting the Francophone and Francophile community of Orléans and Ottawa in providing services and community spaces to all generations.”
