On March 10, 2022, the Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Minister of Official Languages and Minister responsible for ACOA, announced a $450,000 non-repayable contribution for Corridor Community Options for Adults. The funding will help the organization move from its current location in Enfield to a new property in Elmsdale and continue to serve the community like they have been doing for 47 years now. The Minister toured the Corridor facility in Enfield yesterday with Kody Blois, Member of Parliament for Kings–Hants.
The new 17,569 square foot building, scheduled to open in 2023, will create a more accessible and efficient space for the organization’s vocational and day programming, including three social enterprises that provide training environments for participants. It will also allow them to better serve their growing customer base with room to accommodate up to 125 clients. This expansion will triple their capacity and completely eliminate their waitlist.
