Parks invests in heritage infrastructure at Rosamond Woolen Mill

Aug '09
On behalf of the Honorable Jim Prentice, Minister of the Environment and Minister responsible for Parks Canada, Mr. Gordon O'Connor, Minister of State, Chief Government Whip, and Member of Parliament for Carleton-Mississippi Mills, announced that the Government of Canada is providing infrastructure funding to Rosamond Woollen Mill National Historic Site of Canada. This announcement is part of Canada's Economic Action Plan to upgrade national historic sites as a means of stimulating growth in the tourism sector.

“This project will help Rosamond Woollen Mill provide a destination of choice for travellers from around the world,” said Minister Prentice. “In our Economic Action Plan, we recognize how important cultural heritage and tourism are to the economy, and the important role that our Cost-Sharing Program will play in support to local economies, as well as to the fabric of Canadian history.”

Through the National Cost-Sharing Project, the Government of Canada is contributing $36,098 to support the conservation project at the Rosamond Woollen Mill.

“Ontario plays host to many spectacular natural landscapes and interesting historic treasures,” said MP O'Connor. “The Rosamond Woollen Mill is of great historic value to the local community and it offers a wonderful opportunity to experience and learn from our diverse heritage.”

“The funding will allow us to institute climate control for our artefact collection and allow us to open our building year round, so we can expand our contemporary and historical textile exhibits and educational programming,” declared Mr. Michael Rikley-Lancaster, Curator of the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum housed in Rosamond Woollen Mill.

National Historic Sites contribute to tourism in over 400 communities across Canada through direct spending, visitor spending and spin-off economic activity. The Cost-Sharing Program, with a budget of $20 million provided in part by Canada's Economic Action Plan, reflects the government's desire to support job creation in the built heritage sector by providing funding for conservation of National Historic Sites. This Program provides opportunities for many skilled construction and conservation professionals to work on historic places across the country.

The National Historic Sites of Canada Cost-Sharing Program is a contribution program whereby up to 50% of eligible costs incurred in the conservation and presentation of a national historic site are paid by the Program. Eligible recipients include other levels of government, not-for-profit organizations and not-for-profit aboriginal organizations.

Parks Canada works to ensure that Canada's historic and natural heritage is presented and protected for the enjoyment, education and appreciation of all Canadians, today and in the future.
