A big thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation!


The Chippewas of Georgina Island would like to recognize and thank the Ontario Trillium Foundation for the Capital Grant we received in 2018 for the Buzzy Big Canoe Memorial Arena to add washrooms and change rooms to this facility.

Since 1999, this volunteer-run facility has been a hub for all kinds of community recreation events including ice hockey and ball hockey, summer day camp, family fun skates, basketball games and garage sales. The construction of accessible washrooms and changerooms greatly enhances this multi-purpose community facility. Public services such as washrooms encourage people to engage in activities at the arena, knowing that there is a place “to go”. The new washrooms and changerooms make the facility more family friendly. There is now a warm place for athletes to change into their equipment and children no longer have to take off snowsuits in a portable out house in the winter!

Well-maintained public washrooms and change rooms make the Buzzy Big Canoe Memorial Arena more inclusive for people of all ages.  We’d like to say another big miigwech to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for their support!
