Corktown Funding Announced

OPIRG McMaster receives Government of Canada support through My Main Street Community Activator Placemaking Program

June 8, 2022 – Hamilton, ON – OPIRG McMaster is pleased to announce that our Corktown Community Paint-in event was selected for the My Main Street Community Activator program and has received $7,080 that will create a safe space for residents of Corktown, Hamilton and surrounding areas to paint under the sun and connect with fellow neighbours at Corktown Park.

Through the Government of Canada’s My Main Street Community Activator, delivered by the Canadian Urban Institute(CUI), Corktown residents will enjoy a more vibrant neighbourhood setting that will draw visitors and increase foot traffic to shops, restaurants and exciting new public spaces. OPIRG McMaster is supported by My Main Street—a two-year, $23.25-million investment by the Government of Canada through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario), delivered by CUI and the Economic Developers Council of Ontario (EDCO).
