Prince George, B.C.- The Connaught Youth Centre in Prince George  is home to a number of programs,  and  thanks to funding from the Provincial Government and  the Northern Development Initiative Trust,   those with mobility  issues can  take  part  in programs offered in the  gymnasium.

The Province and NDIT each provided  $30 thousand dollars to have a wheel chair lift  installed at the CYC.

“The Connaught Youth Centre is an important facility for  youth and family programs” said MLA Shirley Bond  “The new lift will allow everyone to participate.”

NDIT  CEO, Joel McKay  says  upgrades like   this   can help facilities  attract more events  “Which in turn create improved facilities, ongoing programming and quality of life for the entire community.”
