With the successful referendum result in February 2013, work has now started on raising the remaining funds needed to build the Vanderhoof Aquatic Centre.


How does that breakdown? The District of Vanderhoof is pursuing the following strategy:

✔ - $4 million loan authorized through the referendum

   - $3.5 million from industry donors

   - $500,000 from community members

   - $4 million from government grants


After the incredible turnout for the referendum in 2013 (which resulted in the first checkmark!), we are now turning our attention to raising $500,000 from within the community. Not only will this money directly support the construction of the Aquatic Centre, but it will send a powerful message to industry and government about the importance of this project for our community.

Benefits of A Pool » Learn More

Here is a quick list of benefits for having a pool in a community - there are benefits for every member of the community.

"Our small businesses need quality roads and bridges to deliver goods and services. Workers need fast, efficient public transit to connect them to jobs. And growing companies count on high-quality community services, from libraries to hockey rinks, to attract skilled workers."

Quote from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities
