On June 26 Minister of State for Seniors Alice Wong announced $25,000 for Ladysmith’s Royal Canadian Legion from the federal New Horizons for Seniors Program.

The money will be used for the Legion’s Handicap Access Facilities Project, which will upgrade washrooms to make them wheelchair and walker accessible.

“These facility upgrades will enhance the Legion’s capacity to provide a safer and more accommodating environment where seniors can participate in activities,” Wong said.

The Ladysmith project was one of six in the Cowichan-Nanaimo area, totalling $142,000.
