The P.E.I. government has finalized its purchase of the former Charlottetown Curling Club building.
That’s the site that currently houses the P.E.I. Community Outreach Centre, which offers support to people seeking financial assistance, counselling, employment, food and housing.
The building on Euston Street has not hosted curling since the winter of 2017-18. Club officials decided to sell it in early 2019 because repairs to its ice-making plant would have been too expensive. (Nicola MacLeod/CBC)
This spring, Minister of Social Development and Housing Brad Trivers said the building would be taken over by the province.
He told CBC News this fall he hoped the outreach centre would remain operating at the site at 241 Euston St. for years to come.
