New Library Funding Application Declined

The Municipality of Callander has been informed that our funding application to the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Project (ICIP) regarding a new Callander Public Library was not approved.

The application was for 73.33% of the total $6.4 million of the cost to build a modern 10,000 square foot facility to replace the existing library and provide a community hub.

The intake of this funding stream was highly competitive, and total demand reached upwards of $10 billion against total available joint funding (federal-provincial-applicant) of nearly $1 billion.

The library’s fundraising committee will continue to explore alternative funding sources for the new library.
