In 2014, the Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay conducted public consultations and assessments in determining the scope and need for municipal wellness infrastructure projects. The community’s current facility, the Labrador Training Centre, is a Provincially operated building which is in excess of 55 years old and requires extensive renovations.
The projected cost of a new Labrador Wellness Centre equipped with fitness, aquatic and ice sport sections is between $42.7 – $58.7 million. The Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay has requested financial assistance from the Government of Canada and the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador to share in the overall cost of the project. The Town is also considering creative avenues to finance the Municipality’s share of the Labrador Wellness Centre Project. The Town has signed a Letter of Intent with the YMCA of Newfoundland & Labrador and has hired Conach Consulting Inc. to develop a fundraising strategy for this project.
Findings of the Phase One & Two reports indicate the need for a fiscally responsible long-term, phased approach to address the Town’s serious recreational infrastructure needs.
