Central Nova MP Peter MacKay has announced over half-a-million-dollars in funding for a national level rowing facility on Lochaber Lake in Antigonish Co.
MacKay announced $506,000 for the Lochaber Community Development Association at an event Friday.
The funds will go towards the creation of a community centre and rowing facility with a two-kilometre, six-lane course.
The Lochaber Centre will replace the aging Sylvan Hall and will include meeting rooms, office space, storage space and a medal presentation area.
The association will also build a dock at the facility.
The Municipality of the County of Antigonish has already invested $75,000 towards the project, with the community raising $350,000.
The Regional University Rowing Regatta was hosted on the Lake in early October.
Association members are currently in the process of creating a proposal to host Rowing Canada's 2014 Canadian Masters Championships.
